This chapter reviews the prevalence of vestibular disorders and their impact on daily living. It discusses the physiological principles that underlie manifestations of vestibular disorders. It describes tests of vestibular function with an emphasis on their relationship to basic mechanisms. Research into the mechanisms of compensation for unilateral vestibular injury, based on animal studies of the vestibulo-ocular reflex, is also discussed. The chapter describes strategies for future research designed to ameliorate the deficits caused by vestibular dysfunction. It deals almost exclusively with peripheral disorders, focusing on underlying scientific principles.

Keywords:   vestibular disorders, vestibular function, compensation, vestibulo-ocular reflex, peripheral disorders
