Scott J. Wood, Ph.D.
Department of Otolaryngology
Dr. Wood's research is focused on the adaptation of balance function and spatial orientation to altered sensory environments, such as space flight, as well as enhancing the diagnosis and rehabilitation of vestibular-related clinical disorders. His laboratory at NASA is focused on the neural mechanisms and operational implications of disorientation and tilt-translation disturbances reported by astronauts during and following re-entry. In several of his current studies, he is examining the use of sensory aids (e.g., vibrotactile feedback) as countermeasures to improve spatial orientation and and as balance prosthetics for patients. Dr. Wood supports the vestibular testing at the Brittany Bay clinic.
