Adaptive changes in the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) of goldfish were produced in a few hours by sinusoidally rotating restrained fish in the horizontal plane inside a vertically striped drum. The drum could also be sinusoidally rotated so that the gain of the VOR (the ratio of eye to head angular velocity) would have to increase to two or decrease to zero(More)
The effects of sustained sinusoidal visual stimulation on the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) and the optokinetic reflex (OKR) were investigated. Goldfish were held stationary inside a striped drum rotating sinusoidally about the vertical axis for 3 h. The VOR gain, the ratio of eye to head rotational velocities, was measured in the dark with passive(More)
In goldfish, adaptive gain control of the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) is blocked by cerebellectomy. The operation was rapidly performed on alert goldfish before and after extended periods of adaptive gain training of the VOR produced by sinusoidal oscillation in the horizontal plane. The VOR in these conditions was abolished by sectioning the horizontal(More)
