Is research being done to investigate vestibular dysfunction?

A wide variety of medical research is being done to investigate the causes of vestibular dysfunction, as well as to find new treatments. For example, researchers are looking into ways to use computer technology to improve the diagnosis and treatment of benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), the most common type of vestibular dysfunction. Scientists and doctors are also focusing their research on improving our understanding of how the inner ear's vestibular system works, particularly in people with vestibular dysfunction. Several clinical trials are underway now. Doctors are also trying to develop devices that can be implanted in the inner ear to correct vestibular disorders.
