Each of these facets overlays a discrete ocellus unit averaging 100 [micro]m in length and constituted by a central sensory cell surrounded by usually five pigment cells (Fig.
Many electrophysiological parameters such as velocity of conduction, modality, and adaptation rate serves to differentiate large number of functional types of sensory cell bodies, but it is still not clear how these are related to basic histological types.
The sensory cells are spindle-shaped with darkly stained nuclei and supporting cells that are oval and more transparent (Crofts 1929, Bevelander 1988).
In transverse sections, each of the leaf and the leaflet can be divided into two areas: the basal area consists mainly of two types of large goblet cells, and the apical area that contains a mixture of supporting cells, sensory cells and four types of mucus-secreting cells.
1B) Neuronal cell types within the apical disc are clearly visible, as are the paraxial nerve cords (AN) that merge with the nerve nodule (NN) near the pyriform organ (Fig 1B) All sensory cell types and neuronal cell bodies in the apical disc (AD) are labeled by acetylated [alpha]-tubulin (Fig.
GLU-LIR sensory cells revealed the typical bipolar anatomy of sensory neurons with apical, sometimes robust, dendrites projecting toward the surface and thin efferent axons projecting toward the deeper regions of the peripheral organ (Fig.
The papillary epidermis encompasses support cells, serotonergic sensory cells, and secretory cells (Barker, 1978; Byrne et al.
The sensory cells employing those genes sent their axons toward the bulb, but the axons stopped well short of their targets.
These cells had the typical appearance of sensory cells.
Like the RFamide-positive neuron population as a whole, all significant changes in the RFamide-positive ganglion cell, RFamide-positive sensory cell, and RFamide-positive unclassifiable neuron numbers between stages were increases (Fig.
This cell type is referred to here as a putative sensory cell, because it matches the morphology and distribution of the sensory cells described by Smith (1937) and Yoshida (1966).
