Caloric testing has long been the standard for determining chronic labyrinthine asymmetry and dysfunction. With the advent of active and passive tests of the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR) such as vHIT, Active Head Rotation and Rotational Chair, caloric results have become a less critical part of an overall picture of vestibular function.

“Peeling the Onion” is a monthly column by Harvey Abrams, PhD.

The U.S. National Park Service, using some interesting computer projections and simulations, has recently come out with a “noise map” of the entire continent. And the winner is… Well, I am not sure that it’s the “winner”, whatever that may be. But the Eastern part of the United States in noisier than the Western part. […]
