Abstract
Nerve fibre counts and the spectral distribution of the myelinated nerve fibre diameters were determined for the vestibular nerve of the White King pigeon. An analysis of variance indicated that the raw data for the utricular, saccular, neglectar, anterior ampullary, and horizontal ampullary nerve branches could be pooled to give an overall unimodal distribution having a mode in the class interval 1-2 . This could not be done for the posterior ampullary nerve. Overall, 63.8% of fibres (exclusive of posterior ampullary nerve) were less than 3  in diameter. For the individual nerve branches average fibre counts ~ standard deviations were obtained.
