1. This study demonstrates plasticity of the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR) in chickens and compares it to that of other species and to that of newly hatched chicks. Adaptive changes in the VOR were induced by subjecting the animals to combinations of visual and vestibular stimuli that simulated the effect of the VOR being either too low in gain or reversed in phase. 2. The VOR of chickens resembles that of mammals, but the curve of phase lead versus frequency seems shifted toward higher… CONTINUE READING
