The vestibular system plays a crucial role in enabling a person to remain oriented and move through his environment successfully. Dysfunction of this complex system may leave a patient totally disabled. "Dizziness" is a complaint commonly heard by neurologists, otolaryngologists, and other health care providers, yet its origins are many and often difficult to pinpoint and to treat. Clinical Neurophysiology of the Vestibular System is a classic text that provides a framework for understanding the pathphysiology of diseases involving the vestibular system. Part I reviews the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, with emphasis on clinically relevant material. Part II outlines important features in the patient's history, examination, and laboratory evaluation. Part III presents differential diagnostic points that help the clinician decide on the cause and treatment of the patient's problem. Part IV is a new section on the symptomatic treatment of vertigo. The third edition is thoroughly revised and has been expanded, covering the rapid advances that have occurred in the field in the last ten years. There are new chapters on the laboratory diagnosis of vestibular dysfunction, migraine, immune-mediated disorders, inherited disorders, symptomatic treatment of vertigo, antiemetic and antivertigo drugs, and vestibular rehabilitation.

Review:

"...indispensable and well deserves a centre place on the neuro-otologist's bookshelf. It appeals not only to physicians and surgeons but will be found also by many scientists to be an invaluable source of references."--Brain: a Journal of Neurology

"The book is extremely clearly written and illustrated. References are profuse by one can always perceive an overall message, unlike many modern style reviews which only seem to transcribe electronically available abstracts. The available algorithms are actually useful. There is nothing really wrong here, this is a thoroughly recommendable book."--Clinical Neurophysiology
