The push-pull mechanism is where the left and right canals *in the same plane* are excited/inhibited. As you will see on slide 2.13 in the vestibular lecture, the posterior and anterior canals are not in the same plane on the left and right.

The co-planar pairs are:
– Left and right horizontal canals
– Right posterior and left anterior canal
– Right anterior and left posterior canal
