A&P Unit 4Lecture 6B


Two kinds of equilibrium

Two Kinds of Equilibrium

  • Static equilibrium: Refers to the maintenance

  • of body (head) position relative to the force of

  • gravity.

  • Dynamic equilibrium: Refers to the maintenance

  • of the body (head) in response to sudden

  • movements such as rotation, acceleration,

  • and deceleration


Gross anatomy of the vestibular apparatus

Gross Anatomy of the Vestibular apparatus


Components of the vestibular nerve

Components of the Vestibular Nerve


Static equilibrium

Static Equilibrium

  • The receptors for static equilibrium are the Utricle and the Saccule


Location and structure of the receptors in the macula for static equilibrium

Location and structure of the receptors in the macula for static equilibrium


How the macula functions in relation to gravity

How the macula functions in relation to gravity


Dynamic equilibrium

Dynamic Equilibrium

  • The receptors for dynamic equilibrium are the semicircular canals


Anatomy of the semicircular canal receptors called ampulla

Anatomy of the Semicircular canal receptors called ampulla


How the ampulla function to produce dynamic equilibrium sensations
