Options March 24, 2012: Let's Talk Science with Irene Moon - Sleep with University of California, Berkeley graduate student David Armitage - for Radio Boredcast

IRENE MOON: LET’S TALK SCIENCE – SLEEP - WITH UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA BERKELEY GRADUATE STUDENT DAVE ARMITAGE - FOR RADIO BOREDCAST

Irene uses her entomological and scientific background to connect with individuals from the scientific community; discussing their perception of time on topics they are most intimate and familiar. http://begoniasociety.org

Dave Armitage - Bats are very good sleepers. For his Masters thesis Dave Armitage, now a PHD student at the University of California, Berkley, studied these amazing creatures and explains how a bat enters deep sleep, slowing down its metabolism, and returns to a wake state using the brown fat reserves.  Many bat best kept secrets are revealed. Included in the interview are two recordings. The first recording starts with a Southeastern bat (Myotis austroriparius) and is interrupted by a Brazilian free-tailed bat (Tadarida brasiliensis). The second recording is a good sequence from a Brazilian Free-Tailed bat searching, approaching, and capturing a prey item. The "zzzziiipppp sound" you hear is known in the bat world as a "feeding buzz".
