Resources for Audiology Students
These pages are for students studying Audiological Sciences at Swansea University and are principally to be used as pre-reading before lectures on vestibular physiology, pathophysiology and disease. The ENT Department traditionally contributes to the course during the vestibular module and has created these pages to make educational sessions more informed.
The content is designed as a starter and not as a degree level discussion and students will need to look further into the recommended texts suggested by the Course organisers.
1. Vestibular Anatomy - the inner ear and its connections to the brain
2. Vestibular Physiology - an introduction
3. Vestibular Failure and Compensation
4. Ear diseases causing balance disturbance
a. Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo
c. Vestibular Neuritis and Labyrinthitis
6. Vestibular Paroxysmia
