Summary:
The mechanosensory lateral line system of aquatic animals is now widely recognized as an important sensory system in its own right, with unique contributions to animal behavior. Major technological advances in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and stimulus measurement have led to significant strides in the understanding of its organization and functional significance, but questions about its evolution and relationship  Read more...

   schema:description "The mechanosensory lateral line system of aquatic animals is now widely recognized as an important sensory system in its own right, with unique contributions to animal behavior. Major technological advances in neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and stimulus measurement have led to significant strides in the understanding of its organization and functional significance, but questions about its evolution and relationship to the electrosensory and auditory systems remain. This book presents a comprehensive survey of our knowledge of the mechanosensory lateral line, covering * morphological variation and function * hydrodynamics and the role of flow patterns * developmental, evolutionary, and regenerative mechanisms * sensory transduction * sensory processing by the peripheral and central nervous system * signal analysis and neural mechanisms of behavior * specialized lateral line and related systems. Each contribution provides a unique blend of literature and current research."@en ;
