The competitive-kinesthetic interaction therapy is based on several clinical observations of patients who are treated with the Brügger therapy in the "Murnau approach" and who are suffering from different pain syndromes in their movement system. These patients reported definite lessening of their tinnitus, including (in some cases) a complete cessation of(More)
We examined the space and temporal distributions of the rotatory evoked brain electrical activity patterns (brain electrical activity mapping of vestibular evoked potentials [VestEP]) in humans. We performed a longitudinal scalp line analysis, transversal line analysis, and clockwise/counterclockwise rotation analysis of the VestEP principal components in(More)
Modern neurootology has proved that many vertigo patients suffer from central dysequilibrium states. As vertigo patients are very frequent amongst our patient population we have to increase our diagnostic as well as therapeutical efforts. Since 1965, eliciting vestibular evoked cortical potentials has been possible. A method of evoked responses based upon(More)
Cranio-corpo-graphy affords a photographic representation of the patient's "radar-like" movement patterns as he performs the standing (Unterberger, Fukuda) and stepping (Romberg) tests. Of the various parameters used for analysis, a wide angular deviation, i.e., where the patient deflects more than circa 60 degrees away from the sagittal axis, is taken to(More)
Tinnitus is one of the most important symptoms in neurootology after vertigo, nausea, and hearing loss. In most cases, the origin of the tinnitus remains inexplicable. Well-known, however, is that tinnitus may arise in any part of the hearing pathway (i.e., both within the cochlea receptor and in the temporal lobe and projections). Tinnitus also is(More)
Regulation of the human equilibrium differs from the other, mostly linear, human senses. It consists of a multitude of receptors and an interrelated network that is necessary for data processing as well as for regulatory processes. Thus, the human equilibrium system represents a mixture of hardware and related software interactions. The input is also named(More)
In the present randomized, comparative, double-blind, 3-way crossover study, possible effects of 3 antivertiginous medications on vigilance were investigated. 30 healthy volunteers received single doses of a fixed combination of cinnarizine 20 mg and dimenhydrinate 40 mg (Arlevert, ARL), dimenhydrinate 50 mg, or betahistine dimesylate 12 mg, in randomized(More)
Disorders in vestibulo-ocular functions were studied in 4 patients with olivo-ponto-cerebellar atrophy (OPCA). The phenomenon of habituation, considered as a plastic property of the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR), was explored with a behavioural paradigm in these patients. When subjected to the habituation paradigm all patients presented a modified response(More)
