Conclusion: Activation of cortical areas related to visual motion processing and control of eye movement, and deactivation of parieto-insular vestibular cortices (PIVC) were revealed by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) with small-field optokinetic stimulation (OKS). The results agreed well with those of previous studies, which indicates that the current protocol is reliable enough to be used as a clinical examination. Objectives: To propose an fMRI set-up with OKS that is reliable… Expand
High-resolution fMRI detects neuromodulation of individual brainstem nuclei by electrical tongue stimulation in balance-impaired individuals
TLDR
Optic flow observations suggest the pontine region is the trigeminal nucleus and that tongue stimulation interfaces with the balance-processing network within the pons, and this high-resolution imaging allows detection of activity within individual brainstem nuclei not possible using standard resolution imaging.

Differences in cerebral activation during perception of optokinetic computer stimuli and video clips of living animals: An fMRI study
TLDR
These results suggest that there is increased cerebral activity in the visuo-attentional network whilst viewing moving animals compared with optokinetic computer stimuli. Expand
Cortical processing of vestibular sensation and spatial orientation: a review of fMRI studies
Imaging studies in humans have confirmed the existence of several separate and distinct vestibular cortical areas, which had been identified earlier by tracer and electrophysiological studies inExpand
Sustained cortical and subcortical neuromodulation induced by electrical tongue stimulation
This pilot study aimed to show that information-free stimulation of the tongue can improve behavioral measures and induce sustained neuromodulation of the balance-processing network in individualsExpand
Neuropsychological Approaches to Visually-Induced Vection: an Overview and Evaluation of Neuroimaging and Neurophysiological Studies.
TLDR
These neuropsychological studies allow for the identification of different neuro-cognitive correlates of vection, which will help to unravel the neural basis of vections and offer opportunities for applying vection as a tool in other research areas. Expand
Electrical Tongue Stimulation Normalizes Activity Within the Motion-Sensitive Brain Network in Balance-Impaired Subjects as Revealed by Group Independent Component Analysis
TLDR
Two-sample t-tests of the calculated signal change revealed that the task-related activity of this network is greater in balance-impaired subjects compared with controls before stimulation, but that this network hypersensitivity decreases after electrical tongue stimulation. Expand
Functional neuroimaging of visuo-vestibular interaction
TLDR
The findings suggest that when sensory information regarding self-motion is contradictory, there is preferential activation of multisensory vestibular areas to resolve this ambiguity and that a network of brain areas including the posterior insular cortex may play an important role in integrating and disambiguating visual and Vestibular cues. Expand
Altered functional brain connectivity in patients with visually induced dizziness
TLDR
Findings provide the first insights into the underlying functional brain connectivity in VID patients, which could underlie the typical VID symptoms such as a worsening of their vestibular symptoms when being exposed to challenging visual stimuli. Expand
Which Effects on Neuroanatomy and Path-Integration Survive? Results of a Randomized Controlled Study on Intensive Balance Training
TLDR
The discrepancy between sustained effects in the brain of the training group on the one hand and transient benefits in function on the other may indicate that for the latter to be retained a longer-term practice is required. Expand
Interactions between the visual and motor systems during optokinetic stimulation and simultaneous dynamic handgrip exercise: an EEG study
TLDR
Results support that mutual visual and motor inhibitory interactions persist during their simultaneous engagement, and show their effects on eye movements, as well as exploring whether continuous visual activation inhibits motor activity. Expand

Cortical control of optokinetic nystagmus in humans: a positron emission tomography study
TLDR
The results indicate that processing of OKN-related information is associated with neural activity in a specific set of visual motion areas and suggest that this network can be asymmetrically activated by a strictly unidirectional stimulation. Expand
Direction‐dependent visual cortex activation during horizontal optokinetic stimulation (fMRI study)
TLDR
The absence of a significant difference in the activation pattern of the cortical eye fields supports the view that the processing of eye movements in both horizontal directions is mediated in the same cortical ocular motor areas. Expand
Cerebellar activation during optokinetic stimulation and saccades
TLDR
The authors' data agree with behavioral and physiologic animal data about ocular motor processes and motor learning in the vestibulospinal and optokinetic reflex, and suggest that hemispheric cerebellar activity may be mainly associated with changes in attention, whereas vermal activity seems to be associated with ocularMotor control.

fMRI signal increases and decreases in cortical areas during small-field optokinetic stimulation and central fixation
TLDR
The concept of a reciprocally inhibitory visual–vestibular interaction that has now been demonstrated not only for large-field visual motion stimulation that induces vection but also for optokinetically induced eye movements (without vection) is supported. Expand
An fMRI study of optokinetic nystagmus and smooth-pursuit eye movements in humans
TLDR
FMRI was used to determine the neural basis of OKN and SPEM, and to uncover whether the two underlying neural systems overlap or are independent at the cortical level, and showed a largely overlapping neural circuitry. Expand

TLDR
It is held that a quantitative analysis of saccades parameters (especially saccade frequency and latency) is important for the interpretation of the BOLD changes observed with visual stimuli in fMRI. Expand

Functional MR imaging during horizontal OKN revealed a complex cerebral network of sensorimotor cortical and subcortical activation. Expand

TLDR
Findings in PET and fMRI studies are functionally consistent with the hypothesis of an inhibitory reciprocal visual-vestibular interaction for spatial orientation and motion perception and may reflect the concepts of a sensory conflict mechanism or a mismatch between expected and actual sensory input.

TLDR
The data support the localization of the human FEF, as identified by simple, nonexploratory saccadic eye movements, in the precentral motor strip and premotor cortex, and confirm that the EPISTAR technique can demonstrate localized signal increases during a behavioral task. Expand
