Light Micrograph of the Crista Ampullaris
Image ID: 14880
LM of the crista ampullaris. A cone-shaped cupula forms a cap over the crest of sensory epithelium, which consists of hair cells and supporting cells. Apical stereocilia of hair cells normally insert into the cupula but are not well preserved because of preparation artifact. The loose connective tissue contains nerve fibers, which are dendrites of the vestibular part of cranial nerve VIII. 225×. H&E.
