Inner ear disorders 'linked to hyperactivity ' nner-ear problems could be a cause of hyperactive behaviour, research suggests. A study on mice, published in Science, said such problems caused changes in the brain that led to hyperactivity. It could lead to the development of new targets for behaviour disorder treatments, the US team says.
Your dog's ears consist of the externa, the external ear you can view; the media, or middle ear; and the interna, or inner ear. Your dog's vestibular system, located beside the inner ears, regulates his balance and his relationship to objects in the world. Dogs experiencing inner ear disorders often become disoriented or dizzy, a condition known as labyrinthitis. Treatment depends on the cause of the disorder.
