Research

 

Did you know that about one-third of known fish species can hear as well as humans, if not better? That hearing capability is made possible by their conductive hearing system, named Weberian apparatus, which is equivalent to the middle ear of humans but functional better in aquatic environments. Paleontologists and functional anatomists in Liu Lab study the origin and evolution of that special organ system, the relationships of form and function in the hearing system, as well as its responses to environmental changes.
