Sound-induced motion of the alligator lizard basilar papilla

This image shows a cross-sectional view of the alligator lizard cochlea moving in response to a pure tone. The cross-section was created from a series of top-down images taken at different focal planes. Three hair bundles on the left side can be seen deflecting relative to the cell bodies in response to the tone.
