OBJECTIVE Gait initiation is a transient procedure between orthostatic posture and steady-state locomotion and includes anticipatory anteroposterior (AP) and lateral movements. Commands for this task are located in some levels of brain stem, which modulates activity of central pattern generator in the spinal cord. The purpose of this work was to explore the(More)
Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP) occurring after click stimulation in cervical muscles are thought to be a polysynaptic response of otolith-vestibular nerve origin. In optokinetic after-nystagmus (OKAN) the direction of after-nystagmus changes and slow-phase velocity decreases with head tilt. This phenomenon may be an otolith response to the(More)
A 9-year-old boy with inner ear malformation complained of slight deafness and unsteadiness. CT revealed a normal cochlea despite enlargement of the lateral semicircular canals. The vertical semicircular canals developed more or less normally. The caloric test showed complete canal paresis bilaterally; however, a horizontal rotational stimulus elicited a(More)
