The development of vestibular system and related functions in mammals: impact of gravity

  title={The development of vestibular system and related functions in mammals: impact of gravity},
  author={Marc Jamon},
  booktitle={Front. Integr. Neurosci.},
This chapter reviews the knowledge about the adaptation to Earth gravity during the development of mammals. The impact of early exposure to altered gravity is evaluated at the level of the functions related to the vestibular system, including postural control, homeostatic regulation, and spatial memory. The hypothesis of critical periods in the adaptation to gravity is discussed. Demonstrating a critical period requires removing the gravity stimulus during delimited time windows, what is… CONTINUE READING
