Three groups of six subjects were exposed for six weeks to weekly sessions of Coriolis stimulation to induce motion sickness. Between the first and second Coriolis sessions, subjects in the experimental groups received five episodes of autogenic feedbackbiofeedback training with either true group TFB or false group FFB feedback on their heart rate HR and skin temperature ST. The control group CTL received no treatment Subjects learned to control their HR and ST independent of whether they received true or false feedback. Learned control of ST and HR was not related to subjects ability to withstand Coriolis stimulation following treatment.
