Term Information [More information on ear morphogenesis]

Accession
GO:0042471
Name
ear morphogenesis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
hearing organ morphogenesis
Definition
The process in which the anatomical structures of the ear are generated and organized. The ear is the sense organ in vertebrates that is specialized for the detection of sound, and the maintenance of balance. Includes the outer ear and middle ear, which collect and transmit sound waves; and the inner ear, which contains the organs of balance and (except in fish) hearing. Also includes the pinna, the visible part of the outer ear, present in some mammals. Source: ISBN:0192801023, GOC:jl
