Figure 327 from Chapter 13 (Cilia and Flagella) of 'The Cell' by Don W. Fawcett M.D. Longitudinal section of the apex of a hair cell from the saccular macula of the goldfish. The stereocilia are seen in longitudinal section, the sensory hairs are narrower at their base and contain a large number of parallel filaments that converge into a dense bundle in the narrow basal region of the hair and then diverge again as they continue into the cuticular plate in the apical cytoplasm. A copy of the chapter is available on the ASCB's BioEDUCATE website.
