Simple and complex vestibular responses induced by electrical cortical stimulation of the parietal cortex in humans
The present study reports on a patient undergoing invasive monitoring for intractable epilepsy who experienced different vestibular sensations after electrical cortical stimulation of the inferior parietal lobule at the anterior part of the intraparietal sulcus. Types of vestibular response ranged from simple to complex sensations and depended on stimulation site and applied current. The findings suggest vestibular topography and hierarchical processing within the parietal vestibular cortex of humans.
