Variations in resistance and compliance can result in a transient pressure imbalance, which might help explain the pathophysiology of conditions such as vertigo, BPPV, and Meniere disease. Future directions include constructing a physical model that can be modified by manipulating the resistance in the endolymphatic or perilymphatic system or by adding canaliths to the system.
