Vestibular Sciences

Overview

The Vestibular Sciences labs include Physiology and Neurophysiology & Pharmacology

  •  Vestibular Neurophysiology and PharmacologyDr. Hong Zhu focuses on behavioral, electrophysiological and  neurochemical approaches to study vestibular function in a rodent model.

 

  • Vestibular PhysiologyDr. Wu Zhou’s research examines the neural mechanisms of sensorimotor transformation in the vestibular system. In particular, he studies how the cortical and subcortical brain structures generate compensatory eye movements to stabilize gaze during active and passive head movements.
