Orientation of the lateral semicircular canal in Xenarthra and its links with head posture and phylogeny.

Abstract

The orientation of the semicircular canals of the inner ear in the skull of vertebrates is one of the determinants of the capacity of this system to detect a given rotational movement of the head. Past functional studies on the spatial orientation of the semicircular canals essentially focused on the lateral semicircular canal (LSC), which is supposedly… (More)
