Development of a Dynamic Virtual Reality Model of the Inner Ear Sensory System as a Learning and Demonstrating Tool

Figure 9

Displacement of the cupula of each canal due to: (a) and (b) rotation movement of the chair, (c) and (d) rotation movement of the chair and of the head. The graphics (a) and (c) correspond to an orthogonal coordinate system , whereas (b) and (d) correspond to a non-orthogonal coordinate system . The non-orthogonality of entails a slight response of the verticals canals. This kind of response might be similar in the case of the existence of coupling terms between the canals due to fluid flow.
