Description of Vestibular Clinical Practice Guideline

The Vestibular Disorders Association, or VEDA, is a non-profit organization that serves to inform, support, and advocate for the vestibular community. VEDA is primarily supported through membership dues and individual contributions from our members and the public.  Members are people with vestibular disorders, their friends/family members, and medical and health specialists who diagnose/treat vestibular disorders (physical therapists, audiologists, physicians, and a variety of other specialists).  

VEDA is offering a 25% discount on new memberships!  

VEDA provides an extensive library of information as well as a professional provider directory.  For more information about VEDA, and becoming a member, click HERE.

Exciting paper!  Structural brain changes following peripheral vestibulo-cochlear lesion may indicate multisensory compensation

This paper is the first to suggest via imaging that there are changes in the brain with vestibular compensation.

  • The aim of the Bárány Society is to facilitate contacts between basic scientists and clinicians engaged in vestibular research and to stimulate otoneurological research.
  • The Bárány Society is an international interdisciplinary society founded in 1960 in order to honor the memory of the late Robert Bárány, who was professor of Otorhinolaryngology at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, from 1926 to 1936. Professor Barany was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1915 for his fundamental work on the physiology and pathology of the vestibular apparatus.

Link to Journal of Vestibular Research:

Journal of Vestibular Research is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes experimental and observational studies, review papers, and theoretical papers based on current knowledge of the vestibular system. Subjects of the studies can include experimental animals, normal humans, and humans with vestibular or other related disorders. Study topics can include the following:

  • Neurophysiology of balance, including the vestibular, ocular motor, autonomic, and postural control systems
  • Anatomy of the vestibular system, including vestibulo-ocular, vestibulo-spinal, and vestibulo-autonomic pathways
  • Neurochemistry and neuropharmacology of balance, both at the systems and single neuron level
  • Vestibular-related human performance in various environments
  • Psychophysics of spatial orientation
  • Space and motion sickness
  • Balance disorders
  • Vestibular Rehabilitation
