Summary The book provides the first comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to the topic for all involved in the diagnosis and therapy: physicians (neurologists, otorhinolaryngologists, ophthalmologists), physical therapists and orthoptic assistants. A comprehensive review of basic mechanisms, as well as the clinical picture and its therapy are given. It also is valuable for scientists in basic research who want to relate oculomotor, vestibular and neuropharmacological results to their findings. Topics covered are: anatomy, neurophysiology and neurotransmitters relevant for the generation of eye movements in the vestibular nuclei and other brainstem areas including the cerebellum; peripheral vestibular disorders and their therapy; a complete overview on vestibular compensation, which forms the basis for therapy in vestibular neuritis; the now well understood mechanisms of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) and its effective therapy; pathophysiology and therapeutical principles in Menières disease; latest information on treatment for involuntary eye movements of central origin
