This volume deals with the vestibular apparatus. Jongkees discusses many of the newer theories of the vestibular function and the physiology of the vestibular organ. He also outlines the significance of both normal and pathologic reactions to the various forms of stimulation. Arslan presents a chapter on methods of vestibular examinations and a recommendation for standardization of all prevailing methods of testing the vestibular apparatus. Wodak discusses the physiopathologic problems and presents many case reports and the interpretation of abnormal findings from the standpoint of differential diagnosis of both peripheral and central lesions, with a considerable discussion of Ménière's Syndrome. This book, replete with many references, is unquestionably a very comprehensive evaluation of our present knowledge of the vestibular organ.
