Abstract

The effects of vestibular stimulation on somatoparaphrenic delusion were investigated in a patient suffering from a fronto-temporo-parietal infarction located in the right hemisphere. Transitory remission of the patient's delusional belief was consistently observed during unilateral vestibular activation obtained by means of cold-water irrigation of the left (contralesional) ear.
