A little sac; specifically, the sacculus of the ear.
one of the structures in the inner ear responsible for keeping vertebrates orientated with respect to gravity and movement.
Vestibular system receptor sensitive to linear acceleration and head position.
The horizontally oriented otolith organ of the labyrinth.
sacculus = a little bag, a purse; 1. smaller of two sacs of membranous labyrinth of inner ear, 2. saccule of larynx.
the lower and smaller of two chambers in the membranous labyrinth inside the vestibule of the inner ear; it contains a receptor organ for static equilibrium
sac-like inner ear organ containing otoliths; senses vertical motion of the head.
Found in the inner ear. It plays a role in equilibrium.
part of the vestibular apparatus that are part of the balance system.
inner ear area which contains some of the organs that measure position and gravitational field.
a small sac or pouch (especially the smaller chamber of the membranous labyrinth)
The saccule is the smaller of the two membranous sacs within the vestibule of the ear.
part of the inner ear responsible for gathering information relating to linear acceleration of the head
A portion of the vestibular apparatus of the inner ear; contains a macula important for static equilibrium.
a part of the vestibular system containing sensory receptors that are sensitive to changes in head motion with respect to earth vertical
A sac located in the vestibule that contains an otolith organ. It is a part of the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear.
The saccule is the smaller of the two vestibular sacs; it is globular in form, and lies in the recessus sphÃ¦ricus near the opening of the scala vestibuli of the cochlea.
