Visualizing How the Vestibular System Works

Views: 977

In this activity, students will learn about the effects of different types of motion on the hairs suspended in fluid in the inner ear. Students create a model that permits them to visualize the movement of fluid and bending of hairs in teh inner ear in response to motion it also demonstrates how the vestibular system maintains or restores equilibrium despite movement.
