Abstract

We have developed an accurate, convenient method for determining unique values of vestibular time constants from impulsive tests. The method was used to determine the mean values and standard deviations of 36 normal subjects. A comparison between these normal values and data from patients with cerebellopontine (CP) angle tumors or unilateral peripheral vestibular lesions showed no significant difference in the values of the time constants. We conclude that shape-descriptive parameters such as time constants cannot differentiate between subjects and patients.
