Abstract:

Sixteen subjects were given caloric stimulation while lying in prone and supine body positions. It was found that the nystagmic response in the supine position was significantly greater than the response in the prone position. These findings cannot be explained on the basis of a cupula-gravity interaction, assuming the cupula is heavier than the surrounding endolymph. Author
