Drs Mingjia Dai, Bernard Cohen, Eric Smoutha and Catherine Cho, Department of Neurology and Otolaryngology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA, first published their ground breaking and original research work in Frontiers of Neurology – “Readaptation of the vestibulo-ocular reflex relieves the mal de debarquement syndrome” (2014) .
This year they published another study, “Treatment of the Mal de Debarquement Syndrome: A 1-year follow-up also in Frontiers of Neurology” (2017) .

People who suffer from a rare illness, the Mal de Debarquement Syndrome (MdDS), now have a chance for full recovery thanks to treatment developed by researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Their findings were published online in the July issue of Frontiers in Neurology. Read on… www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2014-08/tmsh-nt080714.php
As stated on Tim’s website, “To our knowledge, the first reference to the syndrome was made by Erasmus Darwin, in 1796. He wrote:
“Those, who have been upon the water in a boat or ship so long, that they have acquired the necessary habits of motion upon that unstable element, at their return on land frequently think in their reveries, or between sleeping and waking, that they observe the room, they sit in, or some of its furniture, to librate like the motion of the vessel. This I have experienced myself, and have been told, that after long voyages, it is some time before these ideas entirely vanish. The same is observable in a less degree after having travelled some days in a stage coach, and particularly when we lie down in bed, and compose ourselves to sleep; in this case it is observable, that the rattling noise of the coach, as well as the undulatory motion, haunts us. ” (Darwin, 1796).
The MdDS Foundation promotes international awareness of Mal de Débarquement Syndrome (MdDS), a chronic neurological disorder causing the feeling of rocking and swaying.
