MODULE 12  SECTION 5 FLASH CARDS for the AUDITORY and VESTIBULAR SYSTEMS In this computer version of flash cards, questions alternate with answers as you scroll down the page. We suggest that you limit the height of your viewing window so that you can't see the answers until you have made your own choices. In this first exercise, we just ask you to identify structures or spaces. In future sets of flash cards we expect to use the blue boxes on the right to ask functional questions.
