Mammals have evolved an inner ear with six different sense organs a cochlea for detecting sound, three semi-circular canals for detecting rotation, and two otolith (Gr. ear rock) organs for detecting linear accelerations. The cochlea is a beautiful, coiled structure which imparts an esthetic, labyrinthine quality to the mammalian inner ear, but it is a relatively late evolutionary development. Fish lack cochleas and hear sounds adequately using one of their otolith organs, the saccule… CONTINUE READING
