Abstract
Nerve fiber counts and the spectral distribution of the myelinated nerve fiber 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 range of 1-2 mu m. The utricular nerve had more fibers smaller than 3 mu m in diameter (84.9%) than the other branches. Overall, 63.8% of fibers (exclusive of posterior ampullary nerve) were less that 3 mu m in diameter. TRUNCATED
