    Brain Inj 25:1058-69. 2011
    ..However, systematic studies regarding adverse effects of GVS are unavailable. Thus, this study assessed adverse effects during and after sub-sensory GVS (mean: 0.6 mA) and GVS with 1.5 mA...

    Lena Schmidt
    Saarland University, Saarbruecken, Germany
    Neurorehabil Neural Repair 27:497-506. 2013
    ..Currently, there is no treatment available for this disorder. Galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) may ameliorate neglect and extinction by activating the thalamocortical network...
