Thank you for this lecture! It helps me to get better understanding about the topic

Very good
By Uchenna O. on 30. March 2020 for Cochlea

Covers a lot of content accurately but concisely. Good speed and great use of diagrams. Admittedly, if I didn't know much about inner ear anatomy to start with, it would not have been detailed enough as a lot of concepts were not explained such as the semicircular canals, the utricle and saccule and the scala vestibuli and tympani.

Vestibular lectures
By Margaret O. on 09. March 2020 for Auditory System and Vestibular System

The vestibular section is not well detailed to enable quick reference. There was not much reference to the vestibular ganglion in the initial lectures which will better explain the vestibular system.
