Can anybody explain the neurophysiological mechanisms behind the signs & Sx
observed in otolith & saccade syndromes? is it due to over-activity of the
unopposed contralateral vestibular nucleus/vestibulocerebellum or?


ipsilateral skew deviation
ipsilateral head-tilt
ipsilateral pulsion of body

ipsilateral lateropulsion
vertical saccades deviate to ipsilateral.

Thanks heaps.
