Patrice Ba Huy Tran, Michel Toupet
Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers, Jan 1, 2001 - Medical - 132 pages
Annotation Topics presented were: Ultrastructural features of the two maculae with special emphasis on the neuromediators involved in vestibular signal processing; Review of the physiology of the otolith organs and some fascinating and unexpected roles of these structures in current clinical symptoms; Principal otolith-related syndromes drawing on clinical experience; Development of thoughts on the role of otoliths in movement perception; Clinical and instrumental investigation of otolith function and a critical appraisal for the tests used in vestibulometric practice with emphasis on the experience in eccentric rotatory testing; Use of the subjective visual vertical test, off-vertical axis rotation and click-evoked myogenic potentials as tools for functional investigations of the otolith organs. This volume provides an exhaustive view of the field in vestibulology, not only for neurophysiologists, otologists, neurologists, and kinesitherapists who are specialized in vestibular rehabilitation, but also for geriatrists and specialists in space medicine.
