Abstract

Objectives. - Cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (cVEMPs) provide assessment of lower-brainstem lesions affecting their neuronal pathways. We aimed to determine whether cVEMPs to air-conducted sound (ACS) are also abnormal in patients with early stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), with or without bulbar involvement.
