The fine structure of the lateral line organ of the Japanese sea eel Lyncozymba nystromi has been studied with the electron microscope. The sensory epithelium of the lateral line organ consists of a cluster of two major types of cells, the sensory hair cells and the supporting cells. The sensory cell is a slender element with a flat upper surface provided with sensory hairs, Two different types of synapses are distinguished on the basal surface of the receptor cell. The first type is an ending… CONTINUE READING
