Neurological and physiologic they are separate. They only work together in the reproductive act SENSES - List o Vision Sensitive to atmospheric wavelengths in the blue to red spectrum Photoreceptors Depolarized by atmosphereic waves of that certain length (blue to red spectrum) o Hearing Based upon another set of atmospheric waves of a certain length that enter ears, vibrate membranes in inner ear, and causes hairs to move on special neurons called hair cells The energy in the wave length is what actually causes hairs to move Energy goes into ears causes hairs to vibrates, which depolarizes the hair cell and starts the impulse that goes to your temporal lobes. But that energy from the atmosphere that went into ears comes back out through auditory tubes that go from ear down into your throat o Point is that energy is just recycled through your body o Equilibrium Made possible by fluid movement in inner ear. The movement of the fluid moves a different kind of hair cell. o
