Researcher | Research Overview
Guangwei Zhou's research focuses on evoked potential and vestibular studies. Currently, he is studying hearing losses attributable to inner-ear anomalies, such as enlarged vestibular aqueduct (EVA) and semicircular canal dehiscence (SCD).
He is also investigating the effects of cochlear implant(s) on vestibular/balance function in children. His study on correlation of hearing loss and vestibular deficits in children with congenital/genetic hearing loss is ongoing. Dr. Zhou's previous research focused on Vestibular Evoked Myogenic Potential (VEMP) testing and its clinical applications, especially in diagnosing Ménière's disease and superior canal dehiscence.
