Abstract:

Disorientation is a complex phenomenon involving changed perception of posture, direction, distance, spatial arrangements, or time. A short review is given of current knowledge about the occurrence of spatial disorientation in man and its relationship to performance. Consideration is given to certain unexplained changes in sensation produced during motion, including travel in space vehicles, aircraft, ground vehicles, and movements which occur in the course of everday life.
