OBJECTIVE Cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMPs) are vestibular-dependent muscle reflexes recorded from the sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscles in humans. cVEMP amplitude is modulated by stimulus intensity and SCM muscle contraction strength, but the effect of muscle contraction is less well-documented. The effects of intensity and… CONTINUE READING
