Balance, sense of
"Our sense of balance is regulated by a complex interaction of the following parts of the nervous system: The inner ears (also called the labyrinth) monitor the directions of motion, such as turning or forward-backward, side-to-side, and up-and-down motions.;The eyes observe where the body is in space (i.e., upside down, right side up, etc.) and also the directions of motion.; Skin pressure receptors such as those located in the feet and seat sense what part of the body is down and touching the ground.; Muscle and joint sensory receptors report what parts of the body are moving.;The central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) processes all the bits of information from the four other systems to make some coordinated sense out of it all."
