Visual symptoms emerging after the loss of vestibular function are usually attributed to the dysfunction of semicircular canal vestibulo-ocular reflexes, as they have been shown to stabilize vision during angular head movements. However, natural head displacements involve both angular and linear motion, and therefore visual instability may occur because of defective otolith-ocular reflexes (OORs) which are the eye movements evoked by linear head acceleration. In this paper, the relationship… CONTINUE READING
