2012 Projects: Vision | Somatosensory | Taste | Olfaction | Abnormal Vision | Hearing

--Mark Hill 09:58, 18 September 2012 (EST) This is a recent review on vision. http://jcb.rupress.org/content/190/6/953.full JCB content allows reuse.

2. History

  • Embryology History Explore the rich history of sensory research. In particular look through the available images that may complement the text. Any of this material can be used, you should cite the original paper or textbook. Gray | 1921 Bailey and Miller

Natalie - Normal function & abnormal function

Liz - tongue & taste development

Jordan - time line of discoveries

Jared - structure & function; recent findings

Hey guys, Unfortunately a lot of other groups seem to want to do hearing & vision as well, so I thought maybe we should choose to do taste. Let me know what you think!

I also brainstormed a few topic headings... feel free to add to it or change the order around


  • Introduction (what is the project about?)
  • Time line of major discoveries / History (early researchers)
  • Structure & Function
  • Tongue development (brief)
  • Taste development - time line and detailed
  • Normal function
  • Abnormal function
  • Current research (recent findings)
  • Glossary and Abbreviations
  • References

Lets do: Sensory - Hearing

From a bit of research this afternoon, I couldn't find much on skin development in terms of "sense organ"/"sense development". I suggest if we do Sensory we do hearing as there was alot of information (inner, middle, outer). And also there are specific screening procedures involved during pregancy.

Couple of link below with basic surface information that we could use as a starting point.



Hi guys

Organ = liver

Sensory = vision / skin / hearing

really usefull website including information on phisiology etc [3]

Useful articles

Hi guys, just putting a subheading of interesting articles found:
