The Neurotology Research laboratory provides extensive resources to support clinical and basic science research in human vestibular, balance and autonomic function. Current research interests include development of vestibular function tests, postural control during head movements, gait initiation, vestibular rehabilitation and vestibular control of autonomic function. Clinical research focuses on patients with vestibular and ophthalmological disorders. The Neurotology Research team actively collaborates with the Devers Eye Institute at Legacy as well as with other laboratories in the U.S. and abroad, and locally sponsors training programs for pre- and post-doctoral students and fellows.
