Fifteen women and sixteen men were given a 10-minute ride in a fixed-base car simulator with a moving visual display Sim-L-CAR. These exposures were standardised, and included a considerable amount of implied but not actual vestibular stimulation. Approximately one half of the subjects wore blinkers which restricted their field of view to the dynamic visual display. The principal findings were Some measurable decline in well-being was reported by 28 of the 31 subjects women were significantly more susceptible than men both previous passenger and car driving experience correlated positively with the degree of disturbance produced by the simulator exclusion of the static features of the field of view appeared to have no effect upon susceptibility.
