- Three patients with migraine following caloric-induced vestibular stimulationBarry Seemungal
Department of Movement and Balance, Imperial College, Charing Cross Fulham Palace Road, W6 8RF, UK
J Neurol 253:1000-1. 2006..We report 3 patients who developed migraine following acute vertigo precipitated during caloric testing. A small proportion of the epidemiological links between migraine and vertigo may be due to vertigo-triggered migraine...
- Neuro-otological emergenciesBarry M Seemungal
Academic Department of Neuro Otology, Division of Neuroscience and Mental Health, Imperial College London, Charing Cross Hospital, London, UK
Curr Opin Neurol 20:32-9. 2007..Physicians find acute vertigo a diagnostic challenge. This article review recent evidence outlining the clinical presentation of acute central and peripheral dizzy syndromes and suggest when clinicians may consider acute neuro-imaging...
- Symptomatic Recovery in Miller Fisher Syndrome Parallels Vestibular-Perceptual and not Vestibular-Ocular Reflex FunctionBarry M Seemungal
Academic Neuro Otology, Centre for Neuroscience, Charing Cross Hospital, Imperial College London London, UK
Front Neurol 2:2. 2011..The findings may have implications for the understanding of patients with chronic vestibular symptoms where VOR testing is often unhelpful...
- Vestibular activation differentially modulates human early visual cortex and V5/MT excitability and response entropyBarry M Seemungal
Centre for Neurosciences, Charing Cross Campus, Imperial College London, London W6 8RF, UK
Cereb Cortex 23:12-9. 2013..Furthermore, using information theory, not previously used in phosphene response analysis, we could distinguish between a specific vestibular modulation of V5/MT excitability from a nonspecific effect at EVC...
- Pearls: dizzinessBarry M Seemungal
Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Neuro Otology Section, Charing Cross Hospital, London, United Kingdom
Semin Neurol 30:23-7. 2010..We summarize the important aspects of history taking and examination in the dizzy patient and relate these clinical aspects to the most common diagnoses that cause patients to complain of dizziness...
- Perceptual encoding of self-motion duration in human posterior parietal cortexBarry M Seemungal
Neuro Otology Unit, Division of Neuroscience, Charing Cross Hospital, Imperial College, London, UK
Ann N Y Acad Sci 1164:236-8. 2009..It was inferred from these and previous data that human PPC is involved in human path integration and motion-duration perception, but not angular velocity self-motion perception...

Prog Brain Res 171:339-46. 2008....
- A practical approach to acute vertigoBarry M Seemungal
Neuro Otology Unit, Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Imperial College London, Charing Cross Hospital, London, UK
Pract Neurol 8:211-21. 2008..As ever in neurology, a careful history and focussed examination is necessary in the evaluation and management of acute vertigo...
- Posterior parietal rTMS disrupts human Path Integration during a vestibular navigation taskBarry M Seemungal
Division of Neurosciences and Mental Health, Imperial College, Charing Cross Hospital Campus, London W6 8RF, United Kingdom
Neurosci Lett 437:88-92. 2008..We suggest that there are separate brain areas that process vestibular signals of head velocity versus those involved in Path Integration...
- Vestibular perception following acute unilateral vestibular lesionsSian Cousins
Neuro Otology Unit, Division of Brain Sciences, Imperial College London, Charing Cross Hospital, London, UK
PLoS ONE 8:e61862. 2013..We provide evidence of perceptual processes (ultimately cortical) participating in vestibular compensation, suppressing asymmetry acutely in unilateral vestibular lesions...
- Vestibular perception and navigation in the congenitally blindBarry M Seemungal
Dept of Movement and Balance, Div of Neurosciences and Psychological Medicine, Imperial College, Charing Cross Hospital, London W6 8RF, UK
J Neurophysiol 97:4341-56. 2007..Although congenitally blind subjects are overall less able to utilize spatial mechanisms during vestibular navigation, prior extensive physical spatial activity may enhance vestibular navigation...
