  Vestibular cognition in health, age and disease
  Dr M Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our sense of balance is signalled by the vestibular system. We use this vestibular sense when we go to the bathroom at night since it helps us to keep upright and keep our sense of direction.
