Abstract
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PROJECT IS TO DEVELOP A NEW INSTRUMENT FOR CALORIC STIMULATION OF THE LABYRINTH DURING CLINICAL EVALUATION OF VESTIBULO-OCULAR REFLEX FUNCTION. THE INSTRUMENT ENVISIONED SHALL BE A COMPACT, PORTABLE DEVICE CAPABLE OF DELIVERING A WIDE VARIETY OF THERMAL WAVEFORMS IN ADDITION TO THE STANDARD CLINICAL TEST STIMULI. PHASE I OF THE PROJECT IS DEDICATED TO INVESTIGATING THE THERMAL TRANSFER CHARACTERISTICS OF THE HUMAN HEAD AS IT RELATES TO THE CALORIC STIMULATION OF THE LABYRINTH VIA THE EXTERNAL AUDITORY MEATUS. THE INITIAL PROTOTYPE HARDWARE TO DELIVER THE REQUIRED THERMAL WAVEFORMS SHALL BE CONSTRUCTED AND EVALUATED IN COMPARISON WITH CONVENTIONAL
