Contribution of irregular semicircular canal afferents to the horizontal vestibuloocular response during constant velocity rotation.

Abstract

1. The effects of constant anodal currents (100 microA) delivered bilaterally to both labyrinths on the horizontal vestibuloocular response (VOR) were studied in squirrel monkeys during steps of angular velocity in the dark. We report that bilateral anodal currents decreased eye velocity approximately 30-50% during the period of galvanic stimulation without… (More)
