Vestibular Sense:

+ add to my flashcards cite this term

The Vestibular Sense refers to the body's set of mechanisms that monitor and adjusts the body's sense of balance and orientation to the world. This sense is what keeps the body upright while standing, sitting or walking and is primarily located in the inner ear. This is why inner ear infections can result in problems with balance.
