Healthy seniors needed (60 years and older): Electrovestibulography (EVestG)
EVestG technology has been applied towards diagnosis of and separation of Parkinson disease (PD) / Schizophrenia / Depression (Unipolar vrs Bipolar) / Meniere's Disease / Controls [6-19]. Sensitivities and specificities so far have been typically above 85%.
EVestG is used as an objective technique for analyzing brain signals to detect neurological and mood disorders compared to healthy brain signals.
