Seoul, South Korea
The Bárány Society is the only international meeting of vestibular scientists and clinicians whose goal is to promote otoneurologic research. Meetings are held every other year.

Professional Societies

Association for Research in Otolaryngology (ARO)
The Association for Research in Otolaryngology is an international association of scientists and physicians dedicated to scientific exploration among all of the disciplines in the field of otolaryngology. Research efforts involve the ear, nose, head, neck and related functions including hearing, balance, speech, taste and smell among others. A wide range of scientific approaches is represented including biochemical, physiological, behavioral, developmental and evolutionary.

Bárány Society
The Bárány Society was founded in 1960; it is named for Robert Bárány, who won the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1914 for his work on the physiology and pathology of the vestibular system. The Bárány Society aim is to increase contact among scientists engaged in vestibular research and to stimulate otoneurological research.

The Society for the Neural Control of Movement
The Neural Control of Movement Society is an international association of scientists pursuing research whose goal is to understand how the brain controls movement

Clinical Resources

National Institute on Deafness and other Communicative Disorders (NIDCD)
The NIDCD is the Institute within the National Institutes of Health that conducts and supports biomedical research and research training on normal mechanisms as well as diseases and disorders of balance.

VEDA, Vestibular Disorders Association
VEDA is a nonprofit organization that provides information to the public and health professionals about inner-ear balance disorders such as Ménière’s disease, BPPV and labyrinthitis.

American Otological Society
This society supports clinical activity and research on normal and pathological processes in the ear, including problems of vestibular origin.
