Physiology of the Vestibular System

The vestibular system serves many different functions, such as keeping vision clear during head motion, sensing balance and head orientation, interacting with body proprioception as well as coordinating with a number of autonomic and limbic system functions.

Our laboratory is primarily interested in the physiology of the vestibular system, particularly in recovery from injuries to the inner ear. Anatomic, behavioral, and physiologic methods are used to investigate mechanisms of recovery that may lead to medical intervention.
