Moving in a Moving World: A Review on Vestibular Motion Sickness

This review focuses on vestibular-only motion sickness, listing the relevant motion stimuli, clarifying the sensory signals involved, and framing them in the context of the current theories.

Prevention and treatment of motion sickness.

Patients should learn to identify situations that will lead to motion sickness and minimize the amount of unpleasant motion they are exposed to by avoiding difficult conditions while traveling or by positioning themselves in the most stable part of the vehicle.

Visual Vertigo, Motion Sickness, and Disorientation in Vehicles.

The putative mechanisms, consequences and approach to managing patients with visual vertigo, motion sickness, and motorist's disorientation syndrome in the context of chronic dizziness and motion sensitivity are discussed.

The Neurophysiology and Treatment of Motion Sickness.

The various types of motion sickness can be treated with general measures to lessen the intersensory conflict, behavioral changes, and drugs.

Anxiety and Motion Sickness Susceptibility May Influence the Ability to Update Orientation in the Horizontal Plane of Healthy Subjects

The results suggest that idiosyncrasies may contribute to the space-time estimation of passive self-motion, with influence from emotional traits, adult motion sickness susceptibility, experience, and possibly sleep quality.

Motion sickness: an overview

In most cases, motion sickness can be prevented by behavioral and environmental modifications (avoidance, habituation, and minimization of motion stimuli).

Motion Sickness Susceptibility and Management at Sea

This chapter describes the signs and symptoms of motion sickness, the possible effects on human performance and the different types of provocative stimuli, and the effectiveness of behavioural and pharmacological countermeasures.

A New Vestibular Stimulation Mode for Motion Sickness With Emphatic Analysis of Pica

It is indicated that the present setup could effectively elicit motion sickness in rat by disturbing vestibular signals in rat in the context of well-controlled proprioceptive inputs and lack of visual afference.

This paper reviews the types of stimuli that cause sickness and synthesizes a mathematical statement of the sensory conflict hypothesis based on observer theory from control engineering that describes the dynamic coupling between the putative conflict signals and nausea magnitude estimates.

Motion sickness symptoms in a ship motion simulator: effects of inside, outside, and no view.

It is hypothesized that appropriate visual information on self-motion is beneficial in a naval setting and that task performance is likely reduced as sickness increases, and why the least sickness was observed when subjects were blindfolded.

Visual field effects on motion sickness in cars.

It is concluded that sickness in cars is dependent on the visual scene, and the minimization of sickness by the provision of visual information requires improved understanding of those factors that combine to cause and suppress sickness.

An ecological Theory of Motion Sickness and Postural Instability

The hypothesis is that animals become sick in situations in which they do not possess (or have not yet learned) strategies that are effective for the maintenance of postural stability.

Modelling motion sickness and subjective vertical mismatch detailed for vertical motions

Why is the driver rarely motion sick? The role of controllability in motion sickness.

This study equated groups differing in controllability for head movement, vision, activity, and predictability, which have often been suggested in the literature as explanations for the driver's immunity to motion sickness, and discussed the concept of feed-forward mechanisms in motion perception.

Motion sickness susceptibility fluctuates through the menstrual cycle.

There was a trend indicating that motion sickness susceptibility was maximal at day 5 'menstruation', decreasing through days 12 and 19 to a minimum at day 26 'pre-menstrual', to a small but significant extent.

Motion sickness: an evolutionary hypothesis.

An hypothesis is proposed suggesting that motion sickness is triggered by difficulties which arise in the programming of movements of the eyes or head when the relations between the spatial frameworks defined by the visual, vestibular, or proprioceptive inputs are repeatedly and unpredictably perturbed.

Prediction of the incidence of motion sickness from the magnitude, frequency, and duration of vertical oscillation.

The prediction procedure, while not seeking to explain the underlying mechanisms of motion sickness occurrence, provides a generally applicable method which is simple to use and has an accuracy consistent with the experimental data on which it is based.
