CONCLUSION The present study demonstrated the robustness of VEMP testing with toneburst stimuli, since it is hardly affected by head position, i.e. base or tonic excitation levels of the saccule and inferior vestibular nerve. However, the small but highly significant difference found in latency should not be neglected: the gravitational axis in the upright position may have some special effect on tonic excitation of the saccule. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the effect of head positions on… CONTINUE READING
