The organ of balance located in the inner ear. Sometimes referred to as the semicircular canals.
The balance apparatus in the inner ear (semicircular canals) which helps orient the individual in space. The eighth cranial nerve supplies this apparatus.
(ves tib´ yew lar) [L. vestibulum: an enclosed passage] • Structures associated with the vertebrate ear; these structures sense changes in position or momentum of the head, affecing balance and motor skills.
Organ of balance and equilibrium. Comprising three semicircular canals (sense rotatory motion) and two otolith organs - saccule and utricle (sense linear acceleration).
Part of the inner ear responsible for equilibrium. Conditions resulting in loss of balance may arise from this area.
a system of fluid passages in the inner ear, made up of the vestibular system and the auditory system, which provides the sense of balance. The vestibular apparatus is made up of the saccule, utricle and semicircular canals, and plays an important role in balance. The saccule, utricle and semicircular canals aren't used for hearing.
part of the cochlea concerned with maintaining balance.
organs mediating the labyrinthine sense; concerned with equilibrium
The vestibular apparatus is the organ that detects sensations concerned with equilibrium; it is composed of a system of bony tubes and chambers in the petrous portion of the temporal bone called the bony labyrinth. The inner ear structures that are associated with balance and position sensing. It includes the vestibule and semicircular canals.
The functional apparatus of the inner ear. See The Ear.
That part of the cochlea associated with maintaining balance.
An organ located in the cat's inner ear which allows cats to land on their feet if they fall.
An organ in the inner ear that contains receptors for body movement and kinesthesis.
