The Vestibular Disorders Association announces the first annual VEDA Champion of Vestibular Medicine Award initiative to increase awareness of vestibular (inner ear balance) disorders.
If you want to glimpse the handiwork of one of your body’s unsung sensory heroes, try this little experiment. Hold your index finger a few inches in front of your face and sweep it back and forth at a rate of maybe once or twice a second. What do you see? A blurry finger. Now hold your finger steady and instead shake your head back and forth at the same half-second pace. This time, no blur, no Marcel Duchamp’s “Nude Descending a Staircase” effect. The finger stays in focus even as your head vigorously pantomimes its denial.
