Caption: Squid sensory hair cells, coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM). These cells are from statocysts, spherical structures found in squids and other cephalopods that provide balance and positional sense. Within the statocyst are strips of hair cells running in each of the three planes. Movement of the squid changes the orientation of the hairs, which then send nerve impulses to the brain.
