The papers in this Annals volume discuss recent research on the physiology of the normal and disordered vestibular and ocular motor systems and the causes and treatment of dizziness and imbalance. A range of topics are covered, including the origins of vestibular science; the pathways, functions, and disorders of the bilateral central vestibular system; pharmacotherapy of vestibular and cerebellar disorders and downbeat nystagmus; impairment of visual exploration and balance during standing and walking in acrophobia patients; histopathology, cytochemistry, and imaging of Meniere's disease; the head impulse test versus caloric dissociation in assessing vestibular dysfunction in Ménière's disease; new insights on Mal de debarquement syndrome; vestibular stimulation by magnetic fields; isolated central vestibular syndrome; vestibular migraine; persistent vertigo and dizziness after mild traumatic brain injury; benign paroxysmal positional vertigo; and a new hypothesis on saccadic palsy following cardiac surgery.
