  • Thomas Brandt


Vertigo is an unpleasant distortion of static gravitational orientation, or an erroneous perception of motion of either the sufferer or the environment. It is not a disease entity, but rather the outcome of many pathological or physiological processes. Vertigo is best described as a multisensory and sensorimotor syndrome with perceptual, postural, ocular motor, and autonomic manifestations induced by either
  • unusual and therefore unadapted (motion) stimulation of the intact sensory systems, or

  • pathological (lesional) dysfunction.
