What is Equilibrium?

Equilibrium (or in relation to humans/animals, Equilibrioception) is the sense of balance that prevents us from falling over when walking or standing still. Balance is the result of body systems working together — the eyes and ear and the body’s perception of where it is in space ideally need to be intact. The brain receives all this information and needs to be functioning normally to process and balance the body. You can find more information here:
