Abstract

Central to our understanding of the function and dysfunction of the vestibular system are results from experiments where distinct manipulations of the peripheral vestibular apparatus have been used to characterize deficits and recovery of neural and reflexive responses. Using the primate oculomotor system as a focus, we summarize here recent advances where peripheral vestibular manipulations have revealed important properties of vestibular function and adaptability.
