50 subjects viewed an optokinetic rotating drum for 12 min. Subjective ratings of motion sickness were obtained during the development of motion sickness. The tonic and phasic skin-conductance responses were recorded from the sites of finger, palm, and forehead during the baseline and drum-rotation periods. Analysis showed subjects' subjective ratings of motion sickness gradually increased during the 12 min. of the drum-rotation period. Both phasic and tonic skin conductance also gradually… Expand
Cross-coupling vestibular stimulation: motion sickness and the vestibulo-sympathetic reflex
TLDR
Although SCL is related to motion sickness, it does not follow the perceived sickness closely and the discrepancy between SCL and motion sickness and the rhythmic AC-SCL events could reflect a sudomotor component of the vestibulo-sympathetic reflex. Expand
Objective and subjective responses to motion sickness: the group and the individual
TLDR
It is noted that knowledge of an individuals’ previous motion sickness response to sickening stimuli increases individual modeling accuracy by a factor of 2 when compared to group-based modeling, indicating individual repeatability. Expand
A comparative study of cybersickness during exposure to virtual reality and "classic" motion sickness: are they different?
TLDR
Differences in symptoms and physiological changes occurring during cybersickness and "classical" motion sickness are quite similar, at least during advanced stages of these malaises. Expand
Effect of virtual reality and whole-body heating on motion sickness severity: A combined and individual stressors approach
TLDR
Understanding of the questions raised by this study inform safe working guidelines for the use of VR in commercial and occupational settings and investigates the individual and combined impact of a hot Ta and VR on motion sickness severity. Expand
Motion sickness, nausea and thermoregulation: The “toxic” hypothesis
TLDR
Evidence from human and animal experiments indicates that the physiological mechanisms responsible for the motion sickness-induced hypothermia include cutaneous vasodilation and sweating (leading to an increase of heat loss and reduced thermogenesis), which suggest that motion sickness triggers highly coordinated physiological response aiming to reduce body temperature. Expand
EEG Alpha and Gamma Modulators Mediate Motion Sickness-Related Spectral Responses
TLDR
Results demonstrated that a higher degree of MS accompanied increased activation of alpha and gamma bands across remote-independent brain processes, covering motor, parietal and occipital areas, which revealed the neurophysiological demand to regulate conflicts among multi-modal sensory systems during MS.

A Knowledge Discovery in Motion Sickness: A Comprehensive Literature Review
TLDR
A range of practical methods to minimize and prevent the unpleasant side effects of motion sickness are presented, including air ventilation, homogenized road/virtual environment features, and providing comfortable set-up and pre-movement before visual acceleration. Expand
Thermoregulation and nausea.
TLDR
Evidence from human and animal experiments indicates that the physiologic mechanisms responsible for the motion sickness-induced hypothermia include cutaneous vasodilation and sweating (leading to an increase of heat loss and reduced thermogenesis), which suggest that motion sickness triggers a highly coordinated physiologic response aiming to reduce body temperature.

EEG Effects of Motion Sickness Induced in a Dynamic Virtual Reality Environment
TLDR
The Electroencephalogram (EEG) dynamics which relate to motion sickness are studied in this paper and it is shown that most subjects experienced an 8-10 Hz power increase to their motion sickness-related phenomena in the parietal and motor areas. Expand
Motion sickness
TLDR
The precise mechanical ride characteristics of vehicles that provoke sickness have been identified and this will lead to guidelines for future engineering design, especially for suspension systems that compensate for inertial tilt, and recommendations for passengers at risk. Expand

Motion sickness severity and physiological correlates during repeated exposures to a rotating optokinetic drum.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the development of motion sickness is accompanied by an increase in gastric tachyarrhythmia, and a increase in sympathetic activity and a decrease in parasympathetic activity, and that adaptation to motion sickness are accompanied by the recovery of autonomic nervous system balance.

TLDR
Phasic skin conductance activity at the forehead site provided the best correlate of motion sickness onset and recovery, and other combinations of signal analysis or recording site were less useful. Expand

Changes of skin potential level and of skin resistance level corresponding to lasting motion discomfort.
TLDR
Skin potential level (SPL) and skin resistance level (SRL) showed better correspondence the recovery period from the motion discomfort and SPL depolarized in the arousal sweat area as well as in the thermal sweat area. Expand
Electrodermal activity as an index of motion sickness.
TLDR
It is concluded that skin conductance potentially offers a valid and very precise measure of motion sickness, but that it is sensitive to extraneous factors only some of which are currently understood. Expand
Comparison of the effects of a selective muscarinic receptor antagonist and hyoscine (scopolamine) on motion sickness, skin conductance and heart rate.
TLDR
The results suggest that compounds with selective M3 and/or m5 antagonism possess activity against motion sickness, and antagonism at these receptors may be the basis of the anti-motion sickness action of hyoscine. Expand

Results suggest that the examination of autonomic responses as an objective indicator of motion sickness malaise is warranted and may contribute to the overall understanding of the syndrome on Earth and in Space. Expand

The relations between ergonomic principles to minimise motion sickness and the concept predictions are highlighted and the clinical management of sufferers from motion sickness in terms of selection, pharmacological measures and desensitisation courses are treated. Expand
