Inner Ear Anomalies and Vestibular-Evoked Myogenic Potentials (VEMP)

It is speculated that sensory cells of Vestibular end organs and vestibular afferent neurons may be present in patient with inner ear malformations, which is similar to early-stage inner ear development.

Clinical Assessment of Otolith Function

The clinical use and recent developments of the cervical V EMP, ocular VEMP, and SVV as tests of saccular and utricular function are discussed.

Vestibular Hearing and Neural Synchronization

Safe vestibular hearing was effective in the improvement of the neural synchronization through slow wave Auditory Brainstem Responses (sABR) and cVEMPs.

Vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials.

The Vestibular-Auditory Interaction for Auditory Brainstem Response to Low Frequencies

It is found that forty affected ears of BPPV patients with decreased vestibular excitability as detected by abnormal cVEMPs had abnormal results in ABR500 HZ, whereas unaffected ears presented normal findings.

Studying the Effect of Auditory Training on Cervical Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potentials in Primary School Age Deaf Children

Voice vocalization and more experience of hearing can strengthen the saccular performance, and time delay and amplitude of the waves of cVEMPs with auditory training in deaf children of primary school age group of Hamadan in autumn 2014 is determined.

Usefulness of vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in diagnosis of peripheral vestibular disorders

VEMP are short-latency EMG that evaluates saccule and inferior vestibular nerve in peripheral vertigo nervous system and should be considered as complementary test along with conventional Vestibular function tests in patients with peripheral Vertigo.

Vestibular-Evoked Myogenic Potential After Cochlear Implantion

Vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) recording is a new tool for exploring the pathways from the sacculus, inferior vestibular nerve, and vestibular nucleus to sternocleidomastoid muscles

Acoustic sensitivity of the vestibular system and mechanical analysis of the tectorial membrane in mammals

This thesis cover two separate topics related to the function of the mammalian inner ear; acoustic sensitivity of the vestibular system and mechanical properties of the tectorial membrane.



Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in humans: a review.

Once precise receptor localization and pathways are clarified, VEMP recording will provide both a straightforward non-invasive exploration of each vestibule independently and an attractive method by which to explore otolithic receptors and vestibulospinal pathways.

Vestibular acoustic reception in the guinea pig: a saccular function?

The hypothesis of a functional acoustic reception by the saccule in a mammal is supported by the results of experiments on the guinea pig.

The Averaged Inion Response Evoked by Acoustic Stimulation: Its Relation to the Saccule

An investigation of the myogenic responses by Cody and Bickford! in the normal population revealed that the inion response is evoked consistently by loud tone-bursts presented against a background of posterior cervical muscle tension.

Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in patients with acoustic neuromas.

The results suggest that the VEMP could be useful for the diagnosis of AN, especially for classifying ANs according to the involved nerves.

Vestibular and cochlear responses to acoustic transients. Some properties of whole-nerve action potentials in pigeons.

G gross electrode electrophysiological responses to transient acoustic stimuli in the pigeon are further analysed and the influence of fenestration of the lateral canal and cochlea extirpation upon these responses was studied.

Cochleovestibular afferent pathways of trapezius muscle responses to clicks in human.

It is concluded that normal MVEP recorded on the trapezius muscles are bilateral and consist of four waves, the amplitude of which could depend on the simultaneous stimulation of both cochlear and vestibular afferents.

Absent vestibular evoked myogenic potentials in vestibular neurolabyrinthitis. An indicator of inferior vestibular nerve involvement?

The results suggest that if VEMPs are absent from an ear that has suffered acute VNL, then posterior semicircular canal BPPV is unlikely to develop as a consequence of the VNL.

Myogenic potentials generated by a click-evoked vestibulocollic reflex.

It is proposed that the p13-n23 response is generated by activation of vestibular afferents, possibly those arising from the saccule, and transmitted via a rapidly conducting oligosynaptic pathway to anterior neck muscles.
