  • A relation between anxiety disorders and balance control dysfunctions has been observed in many studies in humans. A mismatch in the integration of sensory inputs could trigger these disturbances. Very few experimental animal procedures have been designed to study the functional link between anxiety and balance control. A task was therefore developed, challenging the visual, vestibular and somesthesic sensory systems in mice. The test, called the 'rotating beam', gave an accurate assessment of… CONTINUE READING
