New SIDS Study Shows Link to Inner Ear Dysfunction

Dr. Daniel Rubens’ Research

Seattle Success

Candace Meyer had the privilege of presenting at the National Health & PE (SHAPE) conference in Seattle.

Many educators – new to Minds-in-Motion from across America and Canada – eagerly listened to the importance of a strong vestibular system and critical sensory/motor integration.

More importantly, Meyer had the honor of meeting with Dr. Daniel Rubens, a renowned anesthesiologist and researcher at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Rubens has found a possible correlation between the inner ear and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).

The latest findings support his earlier work, which indicates that SIDS babies don’t necessarily have a problem with their brain. Instead, Dr. Daniel Rubens’ research has indicated that problems with hearing and the inner ear may be linked to SIDS.

His newest study, published in the journal, Neuroscience, shows that inner ear dysfunction in mice results in an inability to wake up and move away from a suffocating environment.

Dr. Rubens was so taken with Minds-in-Motion research findings on the inner ear (vestibular system) that he has invited Candace to share his research presentation time at the 25th annual Leicester Physiology Conference in Leicester, England by presenting Minds-in-Motion findings.
