202 pages4 hours


Contributions to Sensory Physiology: Volume 4 presents a theory about the physiological basis of sensation. It discusses some research made in microscopic anatomy and psychophysics. It addresses the functional significance and physiological mechanisms of the sensory systems.
Some of the topics covered in the book are the visual analogs in somesthesis; psychophysical studies of temperature sensitivity; functions of the skin; pathophysiology of the fluid systems of the inner ear; function of the endolymphatic sac; endolymph-perilymph fistulate; and chemistry of the inner ear fluids. The function of the cochlear aqueduct is covered. The perilymph channels are discussed. The text describes the anatomical aspects of the cochlear nucleus and superior olivary complex. A study of the bilaterally innervated cell groups is presented. A chapter is devoted to the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body. Another section focuses on the neurophysiology of nuclei peripheral to the S-segment.
The book can provide useful information to scientists, veterinaries, students, and researchers.
