Biography

Diego Kaski is an international leader in Vestibular Neuroscience, with major publications in high-impact journals, including Nature Genetics, BMJ, Lancet Neurology, and Annals of Internal Medicine. He set up and heads the Centre for Behavioural and Vestibular Neurosciences within the Department of Clinical and Motor Neurosciences at UCL, and lead an active group of research exploring the neural mechanisms of spatial orientation and multisensory integration, with a strong translational element that aims to develop novel clinical biomarkers and therapies for vestibular disorders. As a marker of the prestige surrounding the unit, he welcomes regular International visiting fellows, and receives frequent invitations to take part in International conferences, seminars and masterclasses.

Research Summary

Understanding the mechanisms that guide human behaviour remains a fascinating challenge for neuroscience. Moreover, measuring human behaviour is critical for mechanistic and translation research across all fields of neuroscience, without which it is impossible to understand the effects of targeted interventions, or model neural networks in relation to motor control. From a clinical perspective, behaviour is at the heart of rehabilitation, to guide therapy, develop novel treatment strategies, and monitor outcome. 


Our current research focus includes:


* Acute vertigo treatments 

* Vestibular Migraine pathophysiology & management

* High-order control of Gait and Posture

* Cognitive Vestibular function and spatial orientation

 

The laboratory currently houses unique purpose-built equipment designed to measure all aspects of human behaviour:

 

3D motion capture - Posturography - Wireless EMG - Galvanic stimulation - Eye tracker - Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation - Visual stimuli generators - Comprehensive audio-vestibular assessment battery
