Vertigo is not a unique disease entity. The term covers a number of multisensory and sensorimotor syndromes of various etiologies and pathogeneses, which can be elucidated only with an interdisciplinary approach. After headache, it is one of the most frequent presenting symptoms, not only in neurology. This volume aims to make the different vestibular syndromes more understandable by developing clear, anatomical categories and clinical classifications. The volume will also capture the ongoing interactions among neuroanatomists, neurophysiologists, neurologists, ENT-doctors, ophthalmologists, biologists, neuroinformaticans, and engineers. Topics that will be of interest include the vestibular system and spatial orientation, the role of the cerebellum in postural control, genetics of vestibular disorders, control of gait, functional imaging of the vestibular system, aging of the vestibular system and modeling of vestibular and ocular motor disorders.
