One way to understand the mechanics by which angular movements of the head are transduced by the cupula-endolymph system of the semicircular canals is to monitor the output of this transduction as close to its site of origin as possible. This fact has led several vestibular neurophysiologists over the years to record the activity to a prescribed set of stimuli from primary neurons in the frog, the thornback ray, the cat, the squirrel monkey and, in the case of the present communication, the white king pigeon.
