(1) Dehiscent fruits separate along the zone of dehiscence, the utricle cap (with the stigmas) falling free with the seed, the basal portion remaining on the inflorescence with attendant bracts and sepals.(2) The utricle can thus send signals to the brain representing a combination of fore - aft and lateral motion of the head, whereas the saccule principally conveys information about vertical motion.(3) In terrestrial vertebrates, otoconia are found in three inner-ear sensors, the saccule, the utricle , and the lagena.(4) The receptor organ of posture and equilibrium is a composite one located in the semicircular canals, the utricle , and the saccule of the inner ear.(5) The analysis separates materials primarily based on bract to utricle length ratios and bract length followed by sepal number and utricle dehiscence.(6) Sauer consequently provided the name Amaranthus rudis for plants with a circumscissily dehiscent utricle and single, well developed sepal.(7) The Epley manoeuvre entails a sequence of movements of head and trunk to rotate the posterior semicircular canal in a plane that displaces the plug of debris from the canal into the utricle of the inner ear, where it is inactive.(8) Thus, this project will help us to understand the early and long term effects of altered gravity on the function of its primary receptors, the utricular hair cells.(9) Electrophysiological properties of the utricular primary transducer are modified during development under hypergravity.(10) The cortical filaments are terminated by small swellings, called utricles , which form the external surface of the thallus.(11) The utricular and saccular maculae have similar structures.(12) The neuromasts in the sacculus are apparently oriented oppositely from those in the utriculus .(13) Although we work on diverse hair cell epithelia, our principal model preparation has been the rodent utricular epithelium, which senses linear head movements.
