Clearly labeled diagrams step through the physiological responses from a basic level. Peripheral vestibular impairment and the processes of central nervous system compensation are described thoroughly with clear diagrams to explain the processes... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A section on history taking will help the balance student structure and work through a history to develop an impression of the patient's condition. There is a chapter dedicated to describing ENG and VNG and eye movement examinations with a description of the pathologies indicated, with a few trace examples to show abnormal results. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BPPV in all its various forms is well described with details on the anatomy physiology testing and treatment being covered and well referenced... ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There are six appendices which include a selection of useful questionnaires and information leaflets for patients. - [O]verall this is an ideal book for those wanting to learn about vestibular testing or to develop their knowledge through the reference section."
