Mechanistic teleology and explanation in neurobiology: understanding the origins of behaviour

Horridge, George Adrian

Description

As every submarine commander knows, the best and almost the only underwater sense organs which are effective at long range utilize the excellent transmission of mechanical waves through water. And yet when the known examples of sense organs which are adapted to the detection of underwater vibrations were recently reviewed by Frings (1964), almost no substantiated examples could be found among marine invertebrates.
