The Concussion and Vestibular Evaluation Laboratory

The CAVE Lab focuses on offering clinical vestibular and balance services for Nebraska student-athletes in efforts to provide the student-athlete, their families, and clinical support staff with diagnostic and functional performance information. In conjunction, we conduct research that investigates physiological and functional performance changes to the vestibular and balance system following sports concussions, and methods in which to minimize symptoms. Thirdly, in collaboration with the Barkley Memorial Center Speech Language and Hearing Clinic and surrounding Nebraska hospitals, we conduct clinical research projects that investigate the effects of vestibular loss on physical and behavioral lifestyle outcomes across the lifespan.
