Biology of Sensory Systems by C. U. M. Smith

A comprehensive and highly illustrated text providing a broad and invaluable overview of sensory systems at the molecular, cellular and neurophysiological level of vertebrates, invertebrates and prokaryotes. It retains a strong focus on human systems, and takes an evolutionary and comparative approach to review the mechanosenses, chemosenses, photosenses, and other sensory systems including those for detecting pain, temperature electric and magnetic fields etc. It incorporates exciting and significant new insights provided by molecular biology which demonstrate how similar the molecular architecture and physiology of sensory cells are across species and across sensory modality, often indicationg a common ancestry dating back over half a billion years. Written by a renowned author, with extensive teaching experience in the biology of sensory systems, this book includes: * Over 400 illustrations * Self-assessment questions * Full bibliography preceded by short bibliographical essays * Boxes containing useful supplementary material. It will be invaluable for undergraduates and postgraduates studying biology, zoology, animal physiology, neuroscience, anatomy, molecular biology, physiological psychology and related courses.
