Human graviceptors, located in the trunk by Mittelstaedt, probably transduce acceleration by abdominal viscera motion. As demonstrated previously in biodynamic vibration and impact tolerance research, the thoraco-abdominal viscera exhibit a resonance at 4 to 6 Hz. Behavioral observations and mechanical models of otolith graviceptor response indicate a phase shift, increasing with frequency between 0.01 and 0.5 Hz. Consequently, the potential exists for intermodality sensory conflict between… CONTINUE READING
