• physiology
  • In practice, fish anatomy and physiology complement each other, the former dealing with the structure of a fish, its organs or component parts and how they are put together, such as might be observed on the dissecting table or under the microscope, and the later dealing with how those components function together in the living fish. (wikipedia.org)
  • vibrations
  • Hearing is well-developed in carp, which have the Weberian organ, three specialized vertebral processes that transfer vibrations in the swim bladder to the inner ear. (wikipedia.org)
  • sharks
  • The electric fields induced in oceanic currents by the Earth's magnetic field are of the same order of magnitude as the electric fields that sharks and rays are capable of sensing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although it is hard to test sharks' hearing, they may have a sharp sense of hearing and can possibly hear prey many miles away. (wikipedia.org)
  • Origin
  • This is a reminder of the common origin of these two vibration- and sound-detecting organs that are grouped together as the acoustico-lateralis system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Humans
  • Its presence and functionality in humans was controversial, though most studies agree the organ regresses during fetal development. (wikipedia.org)
  • function
  • The organ for this limited function is simi-larly very simple in design. (mainerealchoices.org)
  • Labyrinth fish (such as gouramis and bettas) have a labyrinth organ above the gills that performs this function. (wikipedia.org)
  • A few other fish have structures resembling labyrinth organs in form and function, most notably snakeheads, pikeheads, and the Clariidae catfish family. (wikipedia.org)
  • skin
  • Organ connected to a hair follicle secreting a fatty substance (sebum) that lubricates the hair and skin, making them impermeable to air and water. (ikonet.com)
  • Sense organs of monogenean skin parasites ending in a typical cilium. (cambridge.org)
  • structure
  • The definitive structure of these senseorgans is only attained in the sexually mature insect and they are only represented by disorganized groups of cells in the nymphs. (biologists.org)
  • Display
  • Examples of transparent organ specimens that he produced were put on display at the First International Hygiene Exposition in Dresden (1911). (wikipedia.org)
  • five
  • Maya hides the Divine nature of created beings, and it creates the sense of separateness and further evolved into five kunchukas. (wikipedia.org)
  • hair
  • Sweat-secreting organ whose excretory duct opens into the hair follicle. (ikonet.com)
  • The mechanoreceptors are hair cells, the same mechanoreceptors for vestibular sense and hearing. (wikipedia.org)
