9780195167085: The Vestibular System: A Sixth Sense

In The Vestibular System: A Sixth Sense, leading experts present an integrative, comprehensive and innovative look at the sense that Aristotle missed. The vestibular system plays a vital role in everyday life, contributing to a surprising range of functions from reflexes to the highest levels of perception and consciousness. This text not only offers a thorough and fresh review of the basic sensory transduction, the neurophysiology of peripheral and central pathways and how vestibular signals are processed in the control of gaze and posture; it significantly moves the discussion forward with its attention to the current research and the field's revolutionary advances, such as the understanding of neural correlates of self-motion and the basis of clinical disorders. In addition, the objective presentation of existing controversies is exciting reading and an extremely important contribution to the text's completeness. Dynamic, intellectually challenging, and unique in its level of integration of the material, this book is essential for anyone interested in understanding the vestibular system.

Review:


"In this fine new treatise on the Vestibular System an introductory chapter overviews the vital roles the system plays in everyday life, while a final chapter reveals the devastating consequences of its clinical malfunction. Between these two chapters we are led systematically from mechano-neural transduction in the periphery, through an elaborate maze of central neural information processing to the behaviorally meaningful outputs of vestibulo-ocular and postural motor control. An appealing aspect of the book is that it reads like a series of living detective stories, written by scientists actively engaged in the tales they tell. In overview It emerges as a landmark achievement which will undoubtedly prove essential reading for a wide range of workers in the field." -- Geoffrey Melvill Jones, MB BCh, FRSC, FRS , Research Professor (Adjunct), Department of Clinical Neurosciences, University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada


"The world of vestibular science has been waiting restlessly for this book for a very long time. Written by those who have made many of the most important contributions to the field, it will become the standard reference work for anyone wanting to know about the neurophysiology of the vestibular system." -- Michael Halmagyi, MD, Neurology Department, Royal Prince Albert Hospital, Camperdown NSW 2050, Sydney, Australia


"At last, an 'update' of Vestibular Physiology by Wilson and Melvill Jones, which has been THE BOOK of the last three decades for all serious students of the vestibular system. One of the more attractive features of that book was that it emphasized function, and incorporated anatomical and physiological data into conceptual and mathematical models that made sense! The Vestibular System-A Sixth Sense has retained this elegance...using the many new techniques available to probe the signal processing in the brain that underlies vestibular behavior. Its unique style of multi authorship, in which all contribute to every chapter, has made the entire book attractive to specialists of all types who might want to delve into the vestibular system, from the bedside clinician to the membrane physiologist." -- David S. Zee, MD, Department of Neurology, Johns Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD 21287 and co-author of The Neurology of Eye Movements, Fourth Edition (Oxford University Press)


"This is an outstanding reference that will likely find its way into the offices of basic scientists and clinicians alike. It is an important contribution to vestibular science...The authors have done a wonderful job of consolidating a broad body of current knowledge into a readable book." -- Doody's


"This book is one of those rare ones on the vestibular system that takes a broad and deep look into it. Its coverage is not only extensive but intensive as well... It is an excellent book on the subject." --Biz India
