Summary of Vestibular transduction
Equilibrium is a sense that does not rely on only one sensory organ. To maintain posture and balance, the vestibular apparatus works in concert with vision and input from the stretch receptors of muscles. Under normal conditions, the contribution from the vestibular apparatus to brainstem nuclei initiates reflexes that change the position of the body.
