Paper Abstract

Laser Doppler microscopy is an efficient method of in vivo measurements of flow velocities in different biological objects. It is based on the registration of frequency shifts in light quasielastically scattered from particles moving in the flows. To study the embryonic development of the cardiac-vascular system in embryos of warm water fishes, embryos of Macropodus opercularis have been used. Doppler spectra from pulsatile blood flows in selected vessels and their changes in the process of ontogenesis have been registered. The recording of the successive spectra and their computer processing yield the varying dynamics of blood flows. Typical age dependencies of velocity patterns in the embryos are presented.
