This monograph on the vestibular evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) has been written by leading investigators in the field and reviews the most recent studies in VEMP. The research encompasses the neurophysiological bases, methods of recording, and applications for common vestibular disorders such as Meniere's disease, vestibular neuritis, and acoustic neuroma. Also included is information on clinical applications to children and on ocular VEMP (oVEMP), a new variant of VEMP. Readers are provided with a full explanation of the principles and unique attributes of the VEMP test, proposed as a new method for assessing the individual saccule function, and will learn how the VEMP and caloric tests compare. Clinicians and scientists in particular can deepen their understanding of vestibular disorders with the knowledge contained in this monograph, which also serves as a quick reference for those interested in the vestibular system and this important new clinical test.
