Vestibulocolic and vestibulospinal reflexes (2016)

Vestibulocolic and vestibulospinal reflexes correct the orientation of the head and body, respectively, when they are taken out of their normal, upright position. This mock textbook page describes the mechanism of vestibulocolic and vestibulospinal reflexes.
