Main Research Topics

 

Vestibular, ocular motor and cerebellar disorders

  • Peripheral vestibular disorders
    • Vestibular neuritis: etiology, viral pathogenesis, and therapy; distribution of Herpes simplex virus in cranial nerve ganglia and different nuclei in the brainstem
    • Cerebellar disorders: treatment and diagnosis
    • Central compensation of unilateral peripheral vestibular lesions: role of vestibular exercises, drug therapy (aminopyridines, betahistine, acetyl-DL-leucine), and somatosensory substitution in humans and animal models
    • Genetics with genome-wide association study, pathophysiology, and etiology of vestibular disorders, such as autoimmunological mechanisms of bilateral vestibulopathy and Cogan’s syndrome.
    • Pharmacotherapy of vestibular disorders with clinical trials in Menière’s disease with betahistine, vestibular paroxysmia with carbamazepine, and BPPV with vitamin D
  • Central vestibular disorders and nystagmus
    • oPharmacotherapy of nystagmus, such as downbeat and upbeat nystagmus with aminopyridines and chlorzoxazone
    • oPharmacotherapy of cerebellar disorders, such as episodic ataxia type 2 and cerebellar ataxias with aminopyridines and acetyl-DL-leucine
    • Evaluation of the mechanism of nicotine-induced nystagmus and nausea
    • oDifferential effects of walking and running in vestibular lesions
  • Central ocular motor disorders
    • Development of tools to diagnose inherited metabolic disorders such as Niemann-Pick type C and Gaucher disease type 3
  • Animal models and studies
    • Central compensation of acute unilateral vestibular lesions on a behavioural level and with imaging techniques (cooperation with A. Zwergal)
    • Animal studies on inherited metabolic disorders (cooperation with F. Platt, Oxford)
    • Measurements of inner ear blood flow to study the pharmacological mechanisms of betahistine and its metabolites (cooperation with M. Canis)

Methods


1) 2- and 3-D video-oculography, scleral-coil technique, measurements of the gain of the VOR by video head impulse test

2) Motion analysis using a 3-D ultrasound system

3) Testing of otolith function with cervical and ocular vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP)

4) Posturography

5) “Neuro-orthoptic” examination techniques, e.g., scanning-laser ophthalmoscopy and subjective visual vertical

6) Animal models on acute and recurrent vestibular disorders, inherited metabolic disorders, ataxias

7) In vitro techniques:

  • Patch-clamp recordings from isolated vestibular hair cells, neurons and brainstem slices
  • PCR, single-cell PCR, in-situ hybridization in peripheral and central nervous structures
  • Immunological techniques
  • Blood-flow measurements in the inner ear (pharmacological studies with betahistine and its metabolites)
