Part of the Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology Series, the Vestibular Learning Manual is designed to be a systematic, practical application of theoretical kwledge commonly taught in vestibular curriculum of Audiology Doctoral programs. Each assignment covers a specific area of vestibular assessment including: ENG/VNG techniques for ocular motor evaluations, positional evaluations, positioning evaluations and air/water caloric evaluations, bedside evaluations, sinusoidal harmonic acceleration, step acceleration and visual vestibular interaction rotational chair evaluations, basic computerized dynamic posturography evaluations(sensory organization test, motor control test and adaptation), tests of dynamic visual acuity, vestibular autorotation, off axis rotational chair evaluations, and various bedside evaluations used in vestibular rehabilitation programs. Case studies and retrospective questions accompany each assignment, bridging theory and practice. Vestibular Learning Manual: Interview with Bre Lynn Myers, AuD Douglas L.Beck, AuD, speaks with private practice co-owner and author, Bre Myers, about her new book that includes topics such as electronystagmography, videonystagmography, rotary chair testing, and more.
