Relations between nerves and cilia in Ctenophores

Horridge, George Adrian

Description

Waves of excitation, visible as ciliary waves, pass along the elongated cells of the ciliated grooves to the comb plates. The frequency of waves is controlled by the loading of the statolith on the balancer cilia, which stand at the head of the grooves. They are primitive mechanoreceptor cilia. A beat of the balancer cilia is the initiation of a wave to the comb rows. All cilia in this sensory-conduction-effector line are marked by compartmenting lamellae. This is a distinct system superimposed...[Show more]
