A Bayesian model of the disambiguation of gravitoinertial force by visual cues
- P. MacNeilage, M. Banks, D. R. Berger, H. Bülthoff
- Psychology, Medicine
- Experimental Brain Research
- 1 May 2007
The otoliths are stimulated in the same fashion by gravitational and inertial forces, so otolith signals are ambiguous indicators of self-orientation. The ambiguity can be resolved with added visual… Expand
Vestibular Heading Discrimination and Sensitivity to Linear Acceleration in Head and World Coordinates

- 7 July 2010
Effective navigation and locomotion depend critically on an observer's ability to judge direction of linear self-motion, i.e., heading. The vestibular cue to heading is the direction of inertial… Expand
Computational approaches to spatial orientation: from transfer functions to dynamic Bayesian inference.
Spatial orientation is the sense of body orientation and self-motion relative to the stationary environment, fundamental to normal waking behavior and control of everyday motor actions including eye… Expand
Systematic Biases in Human Heading Estimation
Heading estimation is vital to everyday navigation and locomotion. Despite extensive behavioral and physiological research on both visual and vestibular heading estimation over more than two decades,… Expand
Canal-otolith interactions and detection thresholds of linear and angular components during curved-path self-motion.
Gravitational signals arising from the otolith organs and vertical plane rotational signals arising from the semicircular canals interact extensively for accurate estimation of tilt and inertial… Expand
Multisensory Integration in Self Motion Perception
Self motion perception involves the integration of visual, vestibular, somatosensory and motor signals. This article reviews the findings from single unit electrophysiology, functional and structural… Expand
Multisensory self-motion compensation during object trajectory judgments.

- Cerebral cortex
- 1 March 2015
Judging object trajectory during self-motion is a fundamental ability for mobile organisms interacting with their environment. This fundamental ability requires the nervous system to compensate for… Expand
Vestibular facilitation of optic flow parsing
The effect of supine body position on human heading perception.
The use of virtual environments in functional imaging experiments is a promising method to investigate and understand the neural basis of human navigation and self-motion perception. However, the… Expand
Dependence of auditory spatial updating on vestibular, proprioceptive, and efference copy signals.

- Psychology, Medicine
- Journal of neurophysiology
- 1 August 2016
Humans localize sounds by comparing inputs across the two ears, resulting in a head-centered representation of sound-source position. When the head moves, information about head movement must be… Expand
