Image Title: Zebrafish lateral line
Description: 5-day-old zebrafish larva stained with DAPI to label nuclei (blue), phalloidin to visualize F-actin (green) and Myosin7a to stain mechanosensory hair cells (red). Zebrafish sense water motion through hair cells (red) in neuromasts in the lateral line along the body and all over the head.

Image Title: Auditory Hair Cells
Description: P8 mouse cochlea stained with DAPI to label cell nuclei (blue), phalloidin (green) to visualize F-actin and Myosin7a (red) to stain mechanosensory hair cells. Mammals detect sounds through an array of sensory receptors called hair cells (red) characterized by stereocilia (green) on their apical surface.
