This is human
anatomy textbook originally written by Henry Gray. Earlier editions were called

extremely influential work on the subject, and has continued to be revised and
republished from its initial publication in 1858 to the present day.
This note covers the following
topics about Vestibular System Anatomy: Membranous Labyrinth, Vestibular Sensory
Epithelium, Vestibular Receptor Cells, Innervation, Central Vestibular
Connections, Projections From the Vestibular Nuclei, Labyrinthine Fluid and
Blood Supply to the Vestibular End Organ.
This guide covers the following
topics related to Facial Nerve Anatomy: Embryology of the Facial Nerve, Central
Connections, Cerebellopontine Angle and the Internal Acoustic Meatus,
Intratemporal Course of the Facial Nerve, Extratemporal Facial Nerve, Facial
Nerve Paralysis and Vascular Supply of the Facial Nerve.
The topics start with general ideas about body systems,
terms used in describing the structures of the body - where they are, how they
lie, their subdivisions, their blood and nerve supply, etc; the tissues and cell
types making up organs; and the structure and workings of cells. Then, explains the individual systems of the body, e.g., muscular, respiratory, etc.
