Abstract:

Visual search within a head-fixed display consisting of a 12 x 12 digit matrix is degraded by whole-body angular oscillation at 0.02 Hz peak velocities or - 155 degsec, and signs and symptoms of motion sickness are prominent in a number of individuals within a 5-minute exposure. Exposure to 2.5 Hz or - 20 degsec peak velocity produces equivalent degradation of the visual search task but does not produce signs and symptoms of motion sickness within a 5-minute exposure.
