Abstract

We used computer techniques to reconstruct in three dimensions 12 vestibular nuclear complexes (VNC) from serially sectioned brains of 7 patients. Specimens were from 4 patients with vestibular disorders and 3 patients considered vestibular normal. Despite the variety of the patient's otologic histories all the nuclei demonstrated the same shape and structural characteristics.
