Abstract

A pilot study with piracetam was performed in 5 selected dizzy patients who had a diagnosis of presby-vertigo or vertebrobasilar insufficiency. The study was monitored by assessing the effect of piracetam on the pursuit-tracking system. All patients showed a remarkable improvement in their pursuit tracking, in addition to marked subjective improvement in their vertigo.
