Abstract:

The purpose of this research is to characterize vestibular function in a population of veterans with Gulf War Illness and determine if subsensory electrical stimulation can improve vestibular function. To date, we have collected vestibular screening data on nine subjects, with four scheduled to return for visits using electrical stimulation. Since we have preliminary data only and have not completed subject visits using electrical stimulation, we are unable to report any significant finding during this research period.
