The vestibular system is a sophisticated human postural control system and can be divided into a central and peripheral system. The vestibular system employs complicated strategies to maintain blood pressure when moving from supine to upright, it helps maintain good head and body orientation in relation to our environment. In short, an ineffective vestibular system can have devastating outcomes on the performance of activities of daily living and have a significant negative impact on quality of life, if not restored.


This short course aims to explore the anatomy of the peripheral and central vestibular systems. We will also introduce 3 important reflexes involved in and how the body cleverly uses these reflexes and functional anatomy together with a comparator to keep restoring postural control.
