en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inner_ear

The inner ear (internal ear, auris interna) is the innermost part of the vertebrate ear. In vertebrates, the inner ear is mainly responsible for sound detection and balance. In mammals, it consists of the bony labyrinth, a hollow cavity in the temporal bone of the skull with a system of passages comprising two main functional parts ...

The receptors of the semicircular canal are called crista ampullaris a sensory organ which consist of hair cells covered with a gel cap called cupula. When the head moves in an angular direction, the endomylph in the canal lag behind. Then , similar to static equilibrium, the hair cells are stimulated sending impulses through ...
