Jumping spider, SEM Featured 4 Oct 2001 Print

Jumping spider, SEM

Jumping spider. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a jumping spider (family Salticidae). Five of its eight simple eyes (ocelli) are seen here (pink). This small tropical spider has strong hind legs and can jump up to fifty times its own body length. It hunts its prey rather than catching it in a web. Its excellent vision allows it to spot the prey from a distance. It then creeps up and pounces by jumping, whilst trailing a safety line of silk behind it. Magnification: x20 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
