Makita investigated for possible changes, of hearing function with postural change of the body. Thirty individuals who were normal in hearing were selected as means of the test; Weber and Tomita tests were used with the subiects in lateral recumbent position. The ma-jority of subjects showed hearing changes by shifting of Weber teast to one side when the body was maintained in the latter position. In author's opinion the change in the direction of Weber test is most likely caused by difference of resonance in the skull which in turn created by alteration of blood circulation in the left and right side of body when it is maintained in late-ral recumbent position.
