Lyriform slit sense organs

  title={Lyriform slit sense organs},
  author={Prof. Dr. Friedrich G. Barth and Peter Pickelmann},
  journal={Journal of comparative physiology},
1. In lyriform organs of arachnids several innervated cuticular slits are closely arranged in parallel. The mechanical consequences of this arrangement were studied in model experiments with regard to their importance for the organ's stimulus conducting properties (Fig. 1). 2. Groups of parallel slits were cut into plexiglass disks. On these static pressure loads were applied from varying directions. The resulting deformation of the slits was measured in terms of compression and dilatation… CONTINUE READING
