Ears & Balance Controls

Ears perform dual functions, with the more familiar one being hearing. The ears enable the brain to perceive and interpret sound vibrations. They also make it possible to locate the source of sound and to distinguish one sound from another. Interestingly, the ears serve as the organ of balance, as the delicate structures located in the inner ear inform the brain about any change in the position of the head and body, consequently helping to maintain equilibrium. 


A problem with any of these controls can make an individual feel dizzy or in extreme cases, lose balance. Sound is closely related to memory. The eyes also play an important role in controlling balance.
