Abstract:

A theoretical model for progressive adaptation to Coriolis accelerations is described. Thirteen subjects were tested under procedures identical to those using fixed velocity increments described in previous studies, but in this instance diminishing velocity increments, with an initial step of 3 revmin were used. The findings provide positive, but as yet, limited support for the theoretical model described. Author
