Overview: Finding Balance: Exploring the vestibular system
In this session, we will focus on the vestibular system which is responsible for encoding the position of the head in space relative to gravity. This portion of the inner ear can be a mystery to many yet, plays a pivotal role in everyday activities. Topics will include anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, auditory and vestibular disorders, vestibular diagnostic tests, and functional outcomes following changes in vestibular function.
