Evidence for dual cortical processes in vestibular integration
A number of behavioural and neuroimaging studies have reported converging data in favour of a cortical network for vestibular function, distributed between the temporo-parietal cortex and the prefrontal cortex in the primate. In this talk we will review the role of the cerebral cortex in visuo-vestibular integration with particular interest on the temporo-occipital and parietal regions. I will present results supporting the idea of two separate cortical vestibular sub-systems involved in distinct aspects of vestibular functions.
