Neural Diagnostics

 

The Neural Diagnostics team is working on vestibular diagnostics, which involves measuring and recording the activity in the vestibular system, the middle-ear and brain structures that are responsible for balance and sensing the body’s position in space.

By developing vestibular diagnostic techniques, we hope to find new and accurate ways to measure the efficacy of medications and other therapies used in mental illness and nervous system disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, unipolar and bipolar depression, schizophrenia and vertiginous diseases (Meniere’s disease, benign paroxysmal positional vertigo and central vertigo).
