J. M. Lovell, M. M. Findlay, R. M. Moate, D. A. Pilgrim (2005): The
polarization of inner ear ciliary bundles from a scorpaeniform fish. J. Fish
Biol., 66(3), 836-846

The polarization of ultrastructural ciliary bundles from hair cells in the
inner ear of the sea scorpion Taurulus bubalis was studied using a scanning
electron microscope, revealing arrays of ciliary bundles with diverse
orientations on each of the sensory epithelia. Members of this order are
known to produce sound, though results of this study show no significant
variation from the standard receptor patterns found in the hearing system of
many silent marine teleosts. This is the first time that the ultrastructure
of T. bubalis has been studied, and this work presents a new set of
polarization patterns, which provide anatomical information important in
understanding electrophysiological aspects of fish hearing from an
ecological perspective.
