Vestibulo-cardiovascular reflexes (VCR) is a complex sensory-motor regulatory system,it refers to changes in body posture,adequate stimulus acting at vestibular receptor and regulation of cardiovascular functions including blood pressure,cardiac rhythm via autonomic center. Excessive vestibular stimulation or unilateral labyrinth lesion may cause paradoxical reaction including vertigo,tachycardia,etc. The evidences,significance,neural circuit,and neurotransmitters of VCR are reviewed in this paper.
