Project description

This research project aims to develop a test protocol, including a dual-task paradigm, to investigate the impact of a vestibular dysfunction on the cognitive performance. This protocol will be validated in a group of patients with complete bilateral vestibular failure and, consequently, will be applied to
a group of patients with a variety of vestibular disorders.
