• larger
  • The utricle is larger than the saccule and is of an oblong form, compressed transversely, and occupies the upper and back part of the vestibule, lying in contact with the recessus ellipticus and the part below it. (wikipedia.org)
  • The mean operating range was 1.5 μm (deflection of the tip of the bundle), approximately threefold larger than in frog saccule. (jneurosci.org)
  • below
  • Adaptation attenuated the transduction currents evoked by sinusoidal bundle deflections below 5 Hz, within the frequency range of the utricle, but because it was incomplete, substantial responses remained. (jneurosci.org)
  • head
  • Any orientation of the head causes a combination of stimulation to the utricles and saccules of the two ears. (wikipedia.org)
