Thanks Tom, There is some data on echolocation. Larry Rosenblum and Dan Ashmead both have some recent work on this. However, as I understand it, echolocation refers specifically to sound produced by the listener (see Ashmead et al. 1998). I am more interested in relatively unidirectional sound sources (other than the listener) that can rotate and listener's ability to detect the orientation (or facing direction) of the directional source. -John Reference: Ashmead, D.
