...Isabelle P. Maiditsch; Friedrich Ladich; Martin Heß; Christian M. Schlepütz; Tanja Schulz-Mirbach ABSTRACT Modern bony fishes possess a high morphological diversity in their auditory structures and auditory capabilities. Yet, how auditory structures such as the otoliths in the inner ears...

...Loïc Kéver; Orphal Colleye; Anthony Herrel; Pascal Romans; Eric Parmentier Numerous studies have highlighted the diversity of fish inner ear morphology. However, the function of the shape, size and orientation of the different structures remains poorly understood. The saccule (otolithic endorgan...

...Shelly Cruz; Jen-Chieh Shiao; Bo-Kai Liao; Chang-Jen Huang; Pung-Pung Hwang SUMMARY Fish otoliths consist of >90% calcium carbonate, the accretion of which depends on acellular endolymph. This study confirms the presence of plasma membrane calcium ATPase 1a isoform (Atp2b1a) in the auditory...

.... Two pigmented structures in the brain of the ascidian larva, the ocellus and the otolith, have been shown to function as the photoreceptive and gravity sensitive organs, respectively. Here, we show that pigmentation is essential for proper phototactic and geotactic behavior in larvae of the ascidian...
