The Vestibular System

The Vestibular System Summary

Veterinary students often have difficulty understanding the vestibular system. The vestibular apparatus senses the position of the head in space, as well as angular and linear acceleration of the head. When the head changes position or accelerates, the vestibular system functions to appropriately adjust the position of the body. Veterinarians commonly encounter animals with conditions that adversely affect the vestibular system. Therefore, the goal of this interactive book is to help veterinary students and practicing veterinarians envision how the vestibular system functions and can be affected by specific diseases.
