Visual-Vestibular Interaction: Effects on Self-Motion Perception and Postural Control
The sensation of self-motion is a common visual illusion which allows inferences concerning visual-vestibular interaction. It may be perceived while gazing at moving clouds, streaming water, or whenExpand
Differential effects of central versus peripheral vision on egocentric and exocentric motion perception
SummaryOptokinetic stimuli allow for two perceptual interpretations. The observer may perceive himself as being stationary in a moving surround (egocentric motion perception) or he may experience anExpand
Multisensory cortical signal increases and decreases during vestibular galvanic stimulation (fMRI).
Functional magnetic resonance imaging blood-oxygenation-level-dependent (BOLD) signal increases (activations) and BOLD signal decreases ("deactivations") were compared in six healthy volunteersExpand
Reciprocal inhibitory visual-vestibular interaction. Visual motion stimulation deactivates the parieto-insular vestibular cortex.
The vestibular system--a sensor of head accelerations--cannot detect self-motion at constant velocity and thus requires supplementary visual information. The perception of self-motion during constantExpand
Vestibular cortex lesions affect the perception of verticality
Seventy‐one patients with unilateral supratentorial infarctions were evaluated with respect to static vestibular function in the roll plane, including determinations of the subjective visualExpand
Dominance for vestibular cortical function in the non-dominant hemisphere.
The aim of this (15)O-labelled H(2)O bolus positron emission tomography (PET) study was to analyse the hemispheric dominance of the vestibular cortical system. Therefore, the differential effects ofExpand
Vestibular loss causes hippocampal atrophy and impaired spatial memory in humans.
The human hippocampal formation plays a crucial role in various aspects of memory processing. Most literature on the human hippocampus stresses its non-spatial memory functions, but older work inExpand
Diagnostic criteria for persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD): Consensus document of the committee for the Classification of Vestibular Disorders of the Bárány Society.
This paper presents diagnostic criteria for persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD) to be included in the International Classification of Vestibular Disorders (ICVD). The term PPPD is new,Expand
Imaging human supraspinal locomotor centers in brainstem and cerebellum
We identified separate and distinct cerebellar and brainstem BOLD signal increases related to posture and gait during mental imagery of standing, walking, and running in healthy volunteers. Expand
Ocular torsion and tilt of subjective visual vertical are sensitive brainstem signs
Deviations of the position of the ey in the roll plance, ocular trosion (OT), and the subjective visual vertical (SVV) wre systematically studied in 111 patients with acure vascular brainstemExpand
