An international group of leading investigators discuss recent progress of sensory structures in lower and higher vertebrates. Experts in two relevant fields--the cell cycle and mitogenic growth factors--present insightful contributions in the search for precursors and/or stem cells in each sense organ plus the signals which regulate those precursors' differentiation both in normal development and regeneration.

The General Architecture of Sensory Neuroepithelia (S. Palay).

Regeneration in Epithelial Proliferative Units as Exemplified by Small Intestinal Crypts (C. Potten).

Hair Cell Regeneration: The Identities of Progenitor Cells, Potential Triggers and Instructive Cues (J. Corwin, et al.).

Regeneration of Lateral Line and Inner Ear Vestibular Cells (J. Jrgensen).

Common Mechanisms of Retinal Regeneration in the Larval Frog and Embryonic Chick (T. Reh, et al.).

Regeneration of Olfactory Receptor Cells (R. Costanzo).
