DONOSO-TRONCOSO, Silvia  and  NOVOA C., Ignacio. Integration of the vestibular system in higher centers. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2019, vol.57, n.1, pp.19-24. ISSN 0717-9227.

The literature usually tells about the contribution of the vestibular system for the maintenance of stability and balance. However, many studies have described its contribution to a variety of cognitive processes such as visuospatial ability, attention, memory and self-perception. This study gives an introductory reference of the contribution of the vestibular system in the aforementioned processes, the evaluation and influence of these on the risk of falls as well as a solution to this condition that usually occurs in patients with alterations of the vestibular system.

Keywords : Vestibular; cognition; superior centers.
