Research interests

Persistent postural perceptual dizziness (PPPD) is a chronic, debilitating condition that describes dizziness and non-spinning vertigo induced by self-movement, challenging visual environments and upright posture. Common triggers include situations of vestibulo-visual conflict, such as cinemas, and intense visual environments, such as supermarkets.

The Cardiff PPPD project is investigating the causes and correlates of PPPD and developing new technological rehabilitation tools for patients. We are collaborating with vestibular clinicians at University Hospital Wales and exploring the enigma of PPPD using a range of theoretical and methodological approaches.  Our research so far has shown that symptoms of PPPD are remarkably common in the general population and that the condition is associated with avoidance and sensitivity across all senses (i.e. not just limited to vision and vestibular).

If you are a clinician and would like to access our videos showing environments that are potential triggers for PPPD, please visit the Cardiff PPPD project webpage.
