Examples of pineal in a Sentence

  1. Krister Smith:

    It’s important to recognize that there’s nothing mystical about the pineal and parapineal organs, they can sense light and play a role in the endocrine system. However, some of the abilities conferred by the pineal are really quite extraordinary. For instance, some lower vertebrates can sense the polarization of light with the third eye and use this to orient themselves geographically.
