Abstract:

The purpose of the study was to further distinguish conditions in which Coriolis cross-coupling effects are disorienting and nauseogenic from conditions in which they are neither disorienting or nauseogenic. When head tilts are executed during an angular acceleration which commences a turn, vestibular stimulation is neither disorienting nor nauseogenic. During constant speed turns and during deceleration which stops such turns, Coriolis cross-coupling effects can be disorienting and nauseogenic if the angular velocity of the turning vehicle is of sufficient magnitude at the time the head movement is made.
