Peripheral Vestibular Lesions and Vestibular System Plasticity

Peripheral Vestibular Lesions and Vestibular System PlasticityThe vestibular end organs in the inner ear, three pairs of semicircular canals and two pairs of otolith organs (the utricle and saccule), provide information of how the head rotates in three-dimensional space and how the body translates in space and posts relatively to gravity respectively.

Animal models of head stabilization: effects of inertia on reflexive movements

Animal models of head stabilization: effects of inertia on reflexive movementsThe goal of this project is to obtain a better understanding of the synergistic properties of the VCR and CCR and their ability to compensate for changes in head inertia during passive movement of the trunk.
