- 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...
- Early Diagnosis and Management of Acute Vertigo from Vestibular Migraine and Ménière's DiseaseBarry Seemungal
Division of Brain Sciences, Charing Cross Hospital, Imperial College London, London, W6 8RF, UK Electronic address
Neurol Clin 33:619-28, ix. 2015..The long-term management of Ménière's disease also involves lifestyle changes (low salt diet), medications (betahistine, steroids), and ablative therapy applied to the diseased ear (eg, intratympanic gentamicin). ..
- 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...

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...

Department of Clinical Neuroscience, Charing Cross Hospital, Imperial College, London, UK
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...

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...
