NeuEra -Belgium, May 3 to 5, 2024- The Ocular & Vestibular System
May 3 to 5, 2024.
Location: ULTEAM, Route de Mons, 637, 7130 Binche,Belgium
Purchasing the training allows you to reserve your place and will also give you access to our education platform. You will therefore be able to watch the course again in rebroadcast.
This session on the ocular and vestibular system will be given exceptionally in a classroom and will give you access to exclusive practical content!!
These online training courses already amount to much more than 6 days of never-before-seen content on these two systems!
So take advantage of this unique opportunity to practice live and be ultra ready to test it the next day on your clients/patients! You won't find it simpler or more effective to improve your clients' posture!
Bonus for students who already have the complete posturology course - you will have the chance to participate for free! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

- NeuEra Visual-Motor Rehabilitation (with or without glasses, relaxation, the 4 eye reset sequences, eye dials, the NeuEra methodology for eye rehabilitation, grid number 1 and 2, duration of eye exercises, as well as duration effects and variants)
- Specific Visual Exercises for Athletes (the test of neural capacity with peripheral vision, the large circle for pre-sport or mental activation, peripheral walking, the visual balancing technique, the vestibulo-ocular holding reflex, as well as the hand-eye relationship and sensory integration)
- Other Possible Supports for Eye Health (in support of eye rehabilitation, possible deficient vitamins associated with visual dysfunction, diet for eye health, as well as eye protection in 7 strategies)
The inner ear has a huge place in the postural system and can lead to deviations, loss of balance, poor activation of the extensor muscles, etc. Mastering these concepts will revolutionize your practice!
This training includes the theory of the inner ear and its relationships with the postural system. You will learn to evaluate and recalibrate the vestibular system, detecting potential asymmetries in the semicircular canals or otolithic organs (the saccule or the utricle).
What will you learn?
- Introduction to the Vestibular System
- Anatomy (The ear, the vestibule, the anterior and posterior membranous labyrinth, the semicircular canals, the innervation and vascularization of the inner ear, the endolymph and the perilymph, the vestibular receptors of the membranous labyrinth, the saccule and the utricle, the ampullae, the physiology of the vestibule, the responses of the saccule and the utricle, the functioning and roles of the otolithic organs, the central connections of the vestibule – static and dynamic functions, the structure of the vestibular epithelium , sensory cells and their polarization, support cells, feedback control of information intake by sensory cells, vestibular, hair and calcium cells, as well as the vestibular nuclei.
- Roles on the Rest of the System
- Anatomical Relations with Other Systems (The neurophysiology of balance, the information pathway, the vestibular system and its relationships, the vestibular system and the autonomic nervous system, the vestibular apparatus, the vestibular nuclei, the nucleus tract solitary and the cerebellum, receptors, vision, the proprioceptive system, the vestibular system, the effector systems, conjugated oculomotor skills, somatic motor skills, as well as the vestibule within the balance system.
- Reflexes Connected to the Inner Ear (Reflexes, the vestibulo-ocular reflex, as well as the vestibulo-colic reflex)
- Postural Neurology and its Pathologies (equilibration, the balance system as a whole, the rebalancing of electrical activity, the intervention of all nervous structures, the overall and schematic functioning, vestibular physiology, vestibular compensation, the vestibular nerve and its problems, as well as the introduction of the vestibular rehabilitation method)
- Emotions, Vestibular System and Laterality (The theory of functional brain systems, from the emotional system to vestibular modalities, evidence of laterality in the vestibulo-cortical network, development of laterality, overlap of associative vestibular circuits with frontal emotional centers , the predominance of the right hemisphere for negative emotions, the integration of the theory of functional brain systems, anxiety, right hemisphere and balance disorders, hostility and vestibular modality, evidence of functional brain systems, as well as the proposed integration model to compete with the vestibular and emotional systems)
- Global Postural Exercises (Postural balance, as well as the integration of body exercises)
- Tests and Corrections Related to Vestibular Neurology (vestibular therapy and ADHD, Miniconi sign, finger-nose test, cogwheel study, rapid head shaking maneuver, correlation between channels semicircular in relation to the ocular muscles, nystagmus observable by isolated stimulation of the canals, Alexander's law, the Epley maneuver, correction of the vestibular system, the laterality test, specific tests of the vestibular system, correlations with the modified Romberg test, the clinical protocol, as well as the fitness protocol)
