This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed.

When sight is lost, muscular and arthrodial impressions become more sensitive and accurate. When one vestibular apparatus is destroyed, the opposite labyrinth must become accustomed to unopposed, unilateral activity, and the muscular, arthrodial, and tactile impressions of space and position must be immensely increased. Until this process of involuntary education is well advanced, it is not surprising that the individual experiences occasional vertigo and ataxia, though he does not exhibit nystagmus and may show no constant tendency to fall in any given direction.

After these symptoms of vestibular irritation have completely subsided, the patient is comparatively comfortable. He has now passed the stage when sudden movements of the head cause nystagmus and its attendant phenomena, and may be up and walking about his room.
