Contributions to Sensory Physiology discusses a theory of the physiological basis of sensation. It describes and illustrates the cellular pattern of the neuro-epithelium, focusing on sensory cells, neural structures, and fluid spaces of the organ of Corti. The book shows that the simultaneous use of light, phase contrast, and electron microscopy generates a better image. It discusses the functional parts of the vestibular and lateral line organs.
The text describes the structure and organization of receptors. The structure of the cupula and otolithic membranes are also explained. Complex types of stimulation are examined in detail. The vestibular system is discussed in full. The electrophysiological analysis of the monkey’s eyes is defined as well as the methods that are being used to examine the primate vision. A chapter of the book focuses on the vision in intermittent light.
The book will provide useful information to veterinarians, anatomists, students, and researchers in the field of ophthalmology.
