Abstract : Barany started his career at the ear clinic in Vienna around the turn of the century. At that time Vienna was the medical center for the whole Austrian empire and its reputation attracted patients and otologists from Europe and the Orient, as well as the whole American continent. In 1906, Barany had published a comprehensive study of the reactions of patients and normal people to rotational and caloric stimulations of the semicircular canals. The results and ideas which Barany presented in this and other papers stimulated a vivid research in the vestibular field over the next few years. When World War I came Barany was stationed in the fortress of Przemysl where he, together with a surgeon, Dr. Ernst Jeger, made valuable contributions to the now totally accepted closed treatment of head wounds on the battlefield.
