Three-dimensional reconstruction of swim bladder extensions, brain, and nerves of E. maculatus. Reconstructions are based on microCT imaging (A-B) and histological serial sections (C-D) shown in anterior (A, C) and right lateral (B, D) views. (C) and (D) show the right swim bladder extension only. Ce, cerebellum; dM, dorsal medulla; Hy, hypothalamus; OT, optic tectum; PLLN, posterior lateral line nerve; sb pad, swim bladder pad; SC, spinal cord; VIII, octaval nerve; (?)IX, glossopharyngeal nerve; (?)X, vagal nerve. Scale bars, 500 μm. microCT, microtomography.
