ings he translated into French. He returned to France in 1742 but was forced to leave Paris because of his views on the close relation between psychic disturbances and organic ills, as expressed in his Histoire naturelle de l’âme (1745) , and returned to Holland.

Three mistakes about the senses

Three widespread assumptions about the human senses are challenged. These are that we have five senses, that they function independently, and, for the purposes of theorising perception, that vision

Semicircular canal morphology as evidence of locomotor environment in amniotes

This exhibition celebrates the 50th anniversary of Stony Brook University's graduate school in Anatomical Sciences, which has produced some of the world's leading scientists and researchers in the field of anatomical sciences.

The video head impulse test

Conclusion: Additional research is needed to validate the importance of the video head impulse tests (vHIT), but it provides an important contribution to the evaluation of anterior and posterior

Anatomy and Clinical Physiology of the Organs of Equilibrium

This chapter discusses the anatomy and physiology of the inner ear, with emphasis on the vestibular organs and functions, and the Vestibular pathways in the central nervous system, exploring the mechanisms that are particularly relevant to its clinical evaluation.

Clinical Evaluation of the Vestibular System: The Vestibular Laboratory Tests

These tests are useful to confirm the preliminary diagnosis derived from the clinical history, the physical examination, and the bedside tests, to identify oculomotor abnormalities by means of a sensitive analysis of eye movements, and to determine whether laboratory tests or images are necessary.
