Answer

Answer

Both ocular and cervical vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) are receiving attention for their potential clinical utility. The more studied cervical VEMP is based on a reflex relation of the sternocleidomastoid muscle in response an acoustic signal. VEMP testing in migraine patients is very similar to that seen in Ménière disease patients, which again emphasizes the similarities between these 2 conditions. [28]
