Compensation

Compensation is a process in which the brain learns how to ignore false signals sent from the inner ear that detect motion.

The false signals, sent when the inner ear is injured or diseased, conflict with the signals from the other balance centres in the body. This results in the symptom called vertigo (a false sense of movement).
