Vestibular Autonomic Regulation

This book, explores a new and exciting investigative area emerging from recent data suggesting that the vestibular system, in addition to detecting body position and movement in space, contributes to the maintenance of stable blood pressure and respiration during movement and postural changes. While it has long been known that vestibular disturbances can result in motion sickness, these new findings link vestibular dysfunction to autonomic disturbances, such as orthostatic hypotension, and to psychiatric conditions, such as agoraphobia.
Vestibular Autonomic Regulation begins with timely reviews of the vestibular system and respiratory, cardiovascular, and autonomic control. It then discusses the basic science and clinical implications of vestibular autonomic integration, elegantly uniting both areas. An excellent multi-authored resource for scientists in neurobiology, vestibular physiology, respiratory control and cardiovascular regulation, and clinicians in neurology, internal medicine, otolaryngology, and military medicine, Vestibular Autonomic Regulation puts you at the forefront of this rapidly expanding research area.
