An ultrastructural study of the tips of four classical bimodal sensilla with one mechanosensitive and several chemosensitive receptor cells

Abstract

1. The ultrastructure of the tips of four insect sensory hairs was examined in serial section. They are characterized as follows: a. an apical pore opening in the dendrite-containing canal (dC); b. a double lumen in the hair shaft; c. multiple and bimodal innervation. 2. Variation was found in the form and cross-sectional area of the apical pores. 3. The… (More)
