Normal visual input plays a very dominant role during locomotion. Functionally, it can assist the central nervous system to overcome a destabilizing effect of abnormal or perturbed vestibular information. However, a recent study has shown a directional effect of transmastoidal galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) on gait trajectory when visual information is unreliable. The purpose of this study was to investigate how inputs from the visual and vestibular systems are weighted to optimize… CONTINUE READING
