Spiders leg, SEM Featured 4 Oct 2001 Print

Spiders leg, SEM

Spider's leg. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the tip of a spider's leg. The tufts of hair allow the spider to grip a surface. A web-building spider possesses additional foot hooks that enable it to grab the thread of the web. A spider's legs are also covered in sensory hairs that detect touch and air vibrations, allowing it to detect the presence of predators and prey. Magnification: x1400 at 6x7cm size

Stereocilia in ear, SEM Featured 4 Oct 2001 Print

Stereocilia in ear, SEM

Stereocilia in ear. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of stereocilia (yellow) in a healthy inner ear. The inner ear converts sound waves into nerve impulses by stimulation of the stereocilia, which project from the ends of sensory hair cells. Sound waves entering the inner ear displace the fluid that surrounds the stereocilia, causing the stereocilia to bend. This bending causes the release of neurotransmitter chemicals, which generate nerve impulses that travel to the brain along the auditory nerve. The inner ear can transmit information about the loudness and pitch of a sound. Magnification: x2185 at 6x7cm size
