Light and scanning electron microscopy was used to study the morphological parameters and ultrastructure of Helix lucorum statocysts and statoliths in Pomatias rivulare statocysts after 56, 93 and 110-day exposure to microgravity aboard the ISS. Increased gravity was simulated by 30-d centrifugation at 6 g. On the first day of recovery, many statoconia and(More)
Vast majority of statoconia in statocysts of Helix lucorum are of oval shape and have smooth surface. Each statoconium in its central part has a nucleus, a spherical mass of 1.5 μ in diameter, surrounded by concentric structures. Minority of statoconia are of subcircular, elongated, rectangular, triangular, irregular, and sometimes fanciful shape and are(More)
The organ of mollusc equilibrium - statocyst appears to be the analogue of acoustic-vestibular system in vertebrate animals. In terrestrial pulmonary snail the epithelial lining of statocyst cavity is created by two types of the cells - a small amount of large cells, provided with kinocilia of sensitive cells and considerably a large number of small(More)
Statocysts H. Lucorum appear to be the paired formations having a spherical form and locating on dorsolateral surface of pedal ganglia of subesophageal ganglionic complex. Using the method of reconstruction, as well as the method of scanning electron microscopy on paraffin and semithin slices it has been revealed that the epithelial lining of H. Lucorum(More)
Prior to examining and describing pelvic organ support defects in females, all clinicians should use optimal pelvic prolapse classification. We proposed our original classification which includes both the prolapse grade and etiopathological causes. In our classification crucial point of descent is isthmus of uterus. Such conception will aid in providing a(More)
Statocyst epithelial lining of terrestrial pulmonary snail Helix lucorum is a spatially arranged structure consisting of 13 cell ensembles. Each ensemble has a sensory cell surrounded by companion cells. The sensory cell on the anterior statocyst pole is star-shaped due to multiple protoplasmatic protrusions on its body. The remaining 12 polygon-shaped(More)
