Vertiginous syndrome

T. Rivera Rodríguez y M. Rodríguez Paradinas

The vestibular function is a complex web of affections and nerve efferences. The control of this function in the inner ear is found in the posterior labyrinth, which performs two very important functions: fixation of the gaze on head movements and postural control in a gravitational field. Oculomotor control has a multisensory nature, since proprioceptive, visual and auditory input are also involved. This information will be sent to the ocular and antigravity muscles that will carry out the interaction or modify it through a feedback mechanism that will optimize the result.
