At the V&B Lab, a number of projects are on-going to investigate various assessments for vestibular and balance systems, with special interest in portability and accessibility for diverse populations. Current and previous projects include: Spatial cognitive functions in deaf/Deaf older adults with and without vestibular impairment; Characteristics of vestibular complaints in deaf adults; Use of virtual reality goggles to replicate six conditions of Sensory Organization Test (AuD research project); Effects of insertion depth of irrigator tip on the magnitude of caloric responses (AuD student project); Effects of caffeine abstinence on oculomotor function tests on videonystagmography (AuD student project); Effects of gaze direction on amplitude of oVEMP (AuD student project); Use of gyroscope to quantify sway magnitude on mCTSIB (AuD student project); Virtual Reality Assessment of Visual Dependence (PhD student project).Facilities. V&B Lab shares its facilities with the Gallaudet University's Clinic, Dizziness and Balance Center, for basic clinical equipment such as videonystagmography, electronystagmography, video head-impulse test, auditory evoked potentials (ABR, VEMP, ECochG), and Balance Master. In addition, we have space and equipment dedicated for research, including the data analysis room adjacent to a large shared research meeting area, and a test room with an Oculus Rift virtual reality system.People.
