The role of proprioceptive input from cervical receptors in vestibular compensation was investi-gated. Vibratory stimulation to the dorsal neck muscle was given to patients with unilateral vestibular lesions and to normal subjects. In normal subjects, the center of gravity shifted forward after vibratory stimulation without any right-left deviation. In patients whose compensation had been achieved, the center of gravity moved to the side of the lesion. From these results, it can be speculated that cervical input plays an important role in the process of vestibular compensation.
