Abstract
The monograph describes, in great detail, the techniques which have been developed at DCIEM over the past several years to provide both qualitative and quantitative electrophysiological information about the function of the vestibular apparatus. A lengthy section describes the construction and use of both platinum-iridium and carbon steel recording microelectrodes. A detailed explanation of two surgical approaches of single units, the determination of the receptor of origin, microelectrode recording, data acquisition, and data reduction complete the main body of the monograph. Some comments on Fourier and point process analyses are included. The step-by-step format of the monograph is intended primarily to aid the novice electrophysiological researcher.
