Study of the Effectiveness of Vestibular Stimulation Treatment in the Depressive Phase of Bipolar Disorder

Vestibular stimulation has been shown to be a very effective noninvasive treatment for major depression. Bipolar disorder is a mental illness that presents cyclic sequences of depressive a...

Reactivity of the Vestibular System to Caloric Vestibular Stimulation in Schizophrenia

This study aims to determine if individuals with schizophrenia have greater reactivity to vestibular stimulation than healthy controls. The physiological response of vestibular stimulation...

Vestibular Stimulation in Parkinson's Disease

The purpose of this study is to determine whether caloric vestibular stimulation improves symptoms of Parkinson's Disease.

The Influence of GVS on Mental Transformation

Corroboratory behavioral evidence showed interaction effects between vestibular stimulation and egocentric transformation. The investigators here examine in healthy participants, whether ...


Falls in the elderly population are a major public health problem because of their frequency and their consequences, notably in terms of dependence their cost to society. In most cases, ba...

Somatosensory modulation of perceptual vestibular detection.

Vestibular-multisensory interactions are essential for self-motion, navigation and postural stability. Despite evidence suggesting shared brain areas between vestibular and somatosensory inputs, no st...

Optic flow detection is not influenced by visual-vestibular congruency.

Optic flow patterns generated by self-motion relative to the stationary environment result in congruent visual-vestibular self-motion signals. Incongruent signals can arise due to object motion, vesti...

Influence of the intensity of galvanic vestibular stimulation and cutaneous stimulation on the soleus H-reflex in healthy individuals.

Modulation of the soleus H-reflex following galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) has been used to evaluate vestibulospinal tract function. It is not known whether this modulation is because of vestib...

Optimal visuo-vestibular integration for self-motion perception in patients with unilateral vestibular loss.

Unilateral vestibular loss (UVL) is accompanied by deficits in processing of visual and vestibular self-motion cues. The present study examined whether multisensory integration of these two types of i...

Effects of Electrical Stimulation of the Rat Vestibular Labyrinth on c-Fos Expression in the Hippocampus.

Several studies have demonstrated that electrical activation of the peripheral vestibular system can evoke field potential, multi-unit neuronal activity and acetylcholine release in the hippocampus (H...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The vestibular part of the 8th cranial nerve (VESTIBULOCOCHLEAR NERVE). The vestibular nerve fibers arise from neurons of Scarpa's ganglion and project peripherally to vestibular hair cells and centrally to the VESTIBULAR NUCLEI of the BRAIN STEM. These fibers mediate the sense of balance and head position.

Method of pain control in which auditory stimulation including music, white noise, and environmental sounds are used.

Vestibular nucleus lying immediately superior to the inferior vestibular nucleus and composed of large multipolar nerve cells. Its upper end becomes continuous with the superior vestibular nucleus. (From Dorland, 28th ed)

Pathological processes of the VESTIBULAR LABYRINTH which contains part of the balancing apparatus. Patients with vestibular diseases show instability and are at risk of frequent falls.

Noise present in occupational, industrial, and factory situations.
