From the Back Cover:

This comprehensive and highly illustrated text provides a broad overview of sensory systems at the molecular, cellular and neurophysiological level of vertebrates, invertebrates and prokaryotes. Whilst retaining a strong focus on human systems, Biology of Sensory Systems takes an evolutionary and comparative approach to review the mechanosenses, chemosenses, photosenses, and other sensory systems including those for detecting pain, temperature, polarised light, electric and magnetic fields, etc. Philosophical implications are noted throughout. The book incorporates the 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 indicating 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
