Figure 4. Scanning electron micrograph of the lateral links between hair cell stereocillia (shown in ovals) in the chinchilla cochlea. The lateral links are hypothesized to be composed of otocadherin. As Pickles et al., (1989) emphasized, these links are only seen in cochlear material in which osmium is not used.
