The Concussion and Vestibular Evaluation Laboratory

The CAVE Lab studies the physiological and functional implications to the vestibular and balance systems following a sport-related concussion, and ways to optimize concussion- vestibular test batteries and interventions.  We also work in collaboration with the others at UNL and surrounding Nebraska hospitals to better understand the effects of certain diseases or behaviors on the vestibular system in children and adults. Clinically, the CAVE lab provides ongoing vestibular and balance services for all Nebraska student-athletes and works in collaboration with Nebraska Athletics.
