Abstract

This book is a compilation of the papers that were presented at the 13th meeting of the Bárány Society held in Ann Arbor, Mich, in 1985. It contains contributions to the entire area of vestibular study and research, both clinical and basic, within the intriguing program, "Space: The New Frontier in Vestibular Research." In this book there is a broad array of the world's activities relative to orientation in space. This exciting new consideration of spatial orientation in a nearly gravity-free environment adds a dimension that will be of interest not only to those in fields of medicine and physiology and the other sciences related to space, but also to all members of our society who are involved or interested in the world's new challenge, space.

The volume has been organized by its editors, Graham and Kemink, in a fashion that lends it to be very readable. The introductory chapter,
