These investigators assert reasons for doing this hi-tech approach, based on a promise that this may lead to therapy for people with dizziness problems. But since such justifications often are rationales for applying exotic technology, we are not in a position to judge the cogency of that argument relative to our current culture's apparent need to view every question through the spin of new instruments.
Regardless of one's level of skepticism about that, or belief that technology-first is the best way ahead, it is reassuring to learn that the human brain can do what we knew very well it could do--and that now we can show it on a video monitor, which the media seem to feel turns it into real science, a story that leaves us dizzy, or at least relatively speechless.
