Squirrel monkeys were trained to cancel their vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) by fixating a visual target that was head stationary during passive vestibular stimulation. The monkeys were seated on a vestibular turntable, and their heads were restrained. A small visual target (0.2°) was projected from the vestibular turntable onto a tangent screen. The monkeys' ability to suppress their VOR by fixating a head stationary target while the turntable was moving was compared to their ability to pursue… CONTINUE READING
