Gravity "Perception" by Non-Specialized Structures.

Schatz, A. and Linke-Hommes, A. and Reitstetter, R. (1990) Gravity "Perception" by Non-Specialized Structures. In: Fourth European Symposium on Life Science Research in Space, 28 May- 1 June 1990, Triest.

Experiments on gravity effects in biological systems demonstrate that gravity can be perceived and used to modify functions even if there are no specialized organs or structures. We will have to look for ubiquitous structures which may interact with gravity. Theoretical investigations of the membrane-solution system indicate density variations in the fluid phase near the membrane surface. Together with related concentration and potential variations the membrane-solution interface turns out to be a structure for which gravity effects may be postulated. Some of these effects and the limitations of the theory will be discussed in detail.
