We studied the anatomy of neuromasts, afferent sensory neurons, and efferent neurons of the midbody branch of the posterior lateral line in larvae of the zebrafish (Brachydanio rerio), 5 days after fertilization. This simple sensory system consists of ten or 11 neuromasts, 15-20 sensory neurons, and about nine efferent neurons. The neuromasts are typical… CONTINUE READING
