Basic and Clinical Aspects of Vertigo and Dizziness

Vertigo is not a unique disease entity. The term covers a number of multisensory and sensorimotor syndromes of various etiologies and pathogeneses, which can be elucidated only with an interdisciplinary approach. After headache, it is one of the most frequent presenting symptoms, not only in neurology.

This volume aims to make the different vestibular syndromes more understandable by developing clear, anatomical categories and clinical classifications. The volume will also capture the ongoing interactions among neuroanatomists, neurophysiologists, neurologists, ENT-doctors, ophthalmologists, biologists, neuroinformaticans, and engineers. Topics that will be of interest include the vestibular system and spatial orientation, the role of the cerebellum in postural control, genetics of vestibular disorders, control of gait, functional imaging of the vestibular system, ageing of the vestibular system and modeling of vestibular and ocular motor disorders.

About the author (2009)

Bernard Cohen won the inaugural Russell Prize for Humour Writing with his title The Antibiography of Robert F Menzies. The award consisted of a $10,000 monetary prize. Cohen has announced he plans to donate $5000 of the prize money to Save the Children for their work with children in detention on Nauru and $5000 to hospitals for children¿s play equipment. The Russell Prize for Humour Writing is administered by the State Library of NSW and was launched to celebrate, recognise and encourage humour writing.
