The effects of caloric vestibular stimulation on regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) of the parietal and temporal cortex were examined in 10 healthy volunteers. The consecutive 99mTe-hexamethyl-propyleneamine oxime (99mTc-HMPAO) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) method with region of interest analysis was used. Changes in rCBF induced by caloric stimulation with cold air (25 degrees C) were evaluated in comparison with those induced by control stimulation with air at body… CONTINUE READING
