Human cervical mechanisms are very deeply connected to the vestibular system, and the contribution of the neck reflexes in postural control is mostly hidden. Consequently, neck reflexes are a subject of minor interest in neurology; clinical practice does not provide methodology to evaluate the contribution of the neck. However, because of the increasing number of patients with cervical ataxia due to acceleration trauma, research on the topic of cervicovestibular interactions is needed in order to find a methodology to sort out the contribution of the neck and the vestibular system in postural control. As a first approach to this research field, the authors did two pilot studies on horizon perception in healthy subjects.

Keywords:   neck reflexes, vestibular system, cervical ataxia, acceleration trauma, cervicovestibular interactions
