It does not come from the healthy side, since afferent activity on that side does not change. 78 If a second labyrinthectomy is performed after compensation for the first occurs, the animal again develops signs of acute unilateral vestibular loss with nystagmus directed toward the previously operated ear (Bechterew’s compensatory nystagmus),79 as if the first labyrinthectomy had not taken place. Compensation after the second labyrinthectomy is slightly faster than after the first, but it still requires several days.

The second role is to produce “kinetic,” or transitory, contractions of muscles for maintenance of equilibrium during movement. 51 Most natural head movements contain both types of acceleration, and the vestibular reflexes act in combination to maintain equilibrium. 53 Tone is increased in the extensor muscles of the contralateral extremities and decreased in the ipsilateral extensor muscles. 54,55 The extensor rigidity that results from transection of the nervous system at the caudal end of the mesencephalon is markedly decreased when the tonic labyrinthine input is removed.
