The Brain Auditory Evoked Response (BAER) can show how your brain processes the sounds you hear. This study can reveal if a person is experiencing hearing loss and certain neurological disorders. A BAER test is simple and quick.
The Visually Evoked Potential (VEP) is a straightforward test that examines the parts of the brain used to process vision and is often used to evaluate visual symptoms such as blurry or double vision.
The vestibular components of the body are the parts of the inner ear and brain that control balance and eye movements. Many things can affect this system such as age, accidents, or disorders and can result in many symptoms. Dizziness, loss of hearing, and a change of vision can be some of the symptoms caused by problems of the vestibular system.
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) is the part of the nervous system that controls the unconscious decisions of the body such as breathing, heartbeat, and other bodily processes. ANS problems can occur in Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and other conditions as well.
