  • 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)
  • fish
  • They provide fish with an additional sense capable of detecting electric and magnetic fields as well as temperature gradients. (wikipedia.org)
  • A number of fish have evolved so-called accessory breathing organs that extract oxygen from the air. (wikipedia.org)
  • Most fish possess highly developed sense organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Many fish also have chemoreceptors that are responsible for extraordinary senses of taste and smell. (wikipedia.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)
  • nature
  • Maya hides the Divine nature of created beings, and it creates the sense of separateness and further evolved into five kunchukas. (wikipedia.org)
  • studies
  • Its presence and functionality in humans was controversial, though most studies agree the organ regresses during fetal development. (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)
  • tissues
  • Many organs and tissues cannot be studied, especially longitudinally, because they are located too deep, behind bony structures or too close to the lung and heart. (jove.com)
  • Unlike benign tumors such as lipomas and most adenomas, malignant skin tumors -lesions that have the potential to grow uncontrollably, to travel (metastasize) and to invade other tissues and organs in a dog's body - must be treated without delay whenever possible. (kerryblues.org)
  • vivo
  • The implantable sensor for sensing in vivo the level of at least one blood constituent in mammalian vascular tissue having at least one source of radiation from infrared. (google.com.au)
  • The implantable sensor for sensing in vivo the level of at least one blood constituent in mammalian vascular tissue having at least one source of radiation from infrared through visible light, arranged to direct the radiation at the tissue where it is affected by interaction with the tissue, and at least one detector. (google.com.au)
  • System
  • The system further includes other devices for dispensing doses of medications or controlling organ function in response to the control signal. (google.com.au)
  • Over the course of the novels, Tally struggles to maintain her sense of self within a society that literally alters how people think and ultimately succeeds in undoing the system of mind alteration. (wikipedia.org)
  • method
  • Thus, protocols to isolate and culture individual organs of interest are essential to provide a method of both visualizing changes in development and allowing novel treatment strategies. (jove.com)
  • Ludwig demonstrated the existence of a new class of secretory nerves that control this action, and by showing that if the nerves are appropriately stimulated the salivary glands continue to secrete, even though the animal be decapitated, he initiated the method of experimenting with excised organs. (wikipedia.org)
  • piano
  • He draws attention to the Sun Ra piano solo "Light from a Hidden Sun" as exemplifying "the range and scope of Sun Ra's musical vision", adding that "there's beauty and elegance here, a compelling sense of swing, too, even in the freest moments. (wikipedia.org)
  • largest
  • The organ is the largest mechanical-action instrument to be installed in Western Australia since the similarly sized Ronald Sharp organ in the Perth Concert Hall was completed in 1974. (wikipedia.org)
