In both mammals and birds there is a striola with a majority of type I cells, while the type It cells are gathered in the periphery. In birds, the striola of macula utriculi and lagenae shows a division into three regions. The morphological polarization has the same pattern in mammals and birds. It is directed centripetally towards the striola in macula utriculi and centrifugally from the striola in macula sacculi. The macula lagenae, which is lacking in mammals, has a centrifugal morphological… CONTINUE READING
