Victoria Tung

Research Fellow

Victoria Tung is studying the modulation of sensory information and its importance in motor control. Her focus currently lies in the efferent vestibular system (which has been shown to modulate incoming vestibular information) and aims to improve our understanding of its role in movement. 
 
Victoria completed her PhD at The University of Sydney where she used behavioural techniques to characterise vestibular contributions to motor performance, and whole-cell electrophysiology to characterise vestibular hair cells and calyceal primary afferent endings during ageing.
 
She is interested in our sense of balance and the co-operation of sensory modalities involved when ensuring, as well as improving, equilibrium during stationary postures, and movement.
