...) by deflection in the same direction, depending on the sign of ctenophore geotaxis (positive or negative). The beat frequency of many cilia is controlled by concentrations of Ca 2+ , membrane potential and neural input. How these factors affect deflection-induced ciliary beating in balancers was investigated...
