The otolith organs respond equivalently to changes in gravitational force due to head tilt and to changes in inertial force due to linear acceleration. It has been shown that the central nervous system (CNS) uses internal models of the laws of physics to distinguish tilt from translation. Models with these internal models predict that illusory tilt, if large enough, will be accompanied by an illusion of linear motion. To investigate this prediction, we measured interaural, self-motion… CONTINUE READING
