Which part of the inner ear is responsible for equilibrium?

Inner ear, also called labyrinth of the ear, part of the ear that contains organs of the senses of hearing and equilibrium. The bony labyrinth, a cavity in the temporal bone, is divided into three sections: the vestibule, the semicircular canals, and the cochlea.

In this manner, which part of the ear functions in maintaining dynamic equilibrium?

A three-part chamber of the inner ear that functions in maintaining equilibrium. The membranous semicircular canals; they contain cristae that are concerned with dynamic equilibrium. Collective term for the organs of equilibrium which includes the saccule utricle and semicircular ducts.

What ear structures function in static equilibrium?

There are two sets of end organs in the inner ear, or labyrinth: the semicircular canals, which respond to rotational movements (angular acceleration); and the utricle and saccule within the vestibule, which respond to changes in the position of the head with respect to gravity (linear acceleration).

What structures are involved in equilibrium?

The neurosensory structures involved in hearing and equilibrium are located in the membranous labyrinth: the organ of Corti is located in the cochlear canal, while the maculae of the utricle and the saccule and the ampullae of the semicircular canals are located in the posterior section.
