OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of linear acceleration impulses delivered when the head is held in different static head orientations, on the first wave of the short latency vestibular evoked potential (VsEP). The first wave is the compound action potential of the primary vestibular neurons synchronously activated. BACKGROUND It has been shown previously that the VsEP elicited in response to linear acceleration is initiated mainly in the otolith organs. These organs are responsive to… CONTINUE READING
