Vestibular Activities The vestibular system helps us know where our bodies are in space and provides a sense of balance and posture. As we move about, our eyes and ears take in sensory information and send it to the brain. The vestibular system is made up of 3 fluid filled canals, a “sack-like” structure, and a “pouch-like” structure, and all of these components work together to respond to movement, gravity, and changes in direction and in head position. The visual system works in conjunction with the vestibular system, allowing both eyes to work together and contributing to smooth eye movements. The proprioceptive system also plays a role in this process (which I will discuss in more detail in another post). As the brain coordinates all of this input, this provides a foundation for the timing and spatial orientation of our movements, allowing us to navigate our environment in a coordinated manner.
