Abstract:

Certain facts suggest that motion disturbance may be related to the amount of vestibular information contributing to sensory conflict. Individual differences in motion disturbance susceptibility might, therefore, correlate positively with differential accessibility of vestibular sensory information to the spatial perceptual process. The results of two experiments, while not inconsistent with this hypothesis, did not demonstrate a relationship between a vestibular response variance measure and motion disturbance susceptibility at the conventional significance level. The test-retest reliability of the response variance measure was not found to be favorable. The slope of the vestibular stimulus-response relationship was not found to predict motion disturbance susceptibility. Author
