The impact of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) on vestibular performance has short term acute and longer term subtle effects. In this pilot study, the long term effects were examined using Electrovestibulography (EVestG) in 2 male subjects with mTBI and side impact histories in comparison with 11 male healthy age-matched controls. Despite the small size of the dataset, the population responses are shown to be significantly different.
