Mayo Clinic doctors and scientists are studying new ways to diagnose and treat balance problems. Specific efforts include developing clinical tests that help evaluate the function of specific components within the vestibular system, and finding links between personality types, specific genes and the risk of developing chronic dizziness.
The Neuro-otology Program has a multidisciplinary team researching a range of conditions affecting balance. The Aerospace Medicine and Vestibular Research Laboratory investigates and develops strategies to enhance human health and performance in the aerospace environment, encompassing the mitigation of motion and simulator sickness.
