Abstract
The scanning electron microscope (SEM) was used to investigate the morphology of the neuroepithelial regions of the vestibular ampullary structures in 47 White King pigeons. The specific neural surfaces studied were (1) the cristae ampullares of the vertical and lateral membranous ampullae, (2) the hair cells lining the cristae, (3) the ampullary nerve fibers, and (4) the bipolar cells of the vestibular (Scarpa's) ganglion. Additionally, some observations of the gross anatomical structures of the bony labyrinth are given.
