What is the “Dizzy Pub Fare?”

The monthly vestibular abstract review identifies timely, emerging evidence within the clinical and scientific literature for rehabilitation providers and scientists interested in treating and investigating vestibular dysfunction and for those seeking to better understand clinical vestibular neurophysiology. Topic areas of emphasis include: vestibular rehabilitation, basic science- vestibular, pathology- vestibular, select authors- vestibular and clinical assessment- vestibular. Queried sources are representative of a broad cross-section of disciplines including professional journals from: ENT, Physical Therapy, Audiology, Rehabilitation medicine, and Neuroscience communities accessed using PubMed (PubCrawler) and other search engines. Most citations are current within 30 days however; recent, high- impact manuscripts not previously highlighted in this list are also strongly considered for inclusion space permitting.
