Abstract Background Visually induced motion sickness (VIMS) is commonly experienced when visual motion information is in conflict with motion information provided by the vestibular system and/or tactile and kinesthetic senses. According to some studies, women experience higher levels of VIMS than men, whereas other studies do not find this to be the case. Hypothesis This study investigated whether gender differences can be attributed to changes in VIMS-susceptibility due to the menstrual cycle… 

Topics from this paper

Visually Induced Motion Sickness on the Horizon
TLDR
Results show that only the earth-fixed horizon was able to significantly reduce visually induced motion sickness, and a mere earth-stationary anchor does not suffice, a clear indication of earth horizontal seems necessary to reap a modest benefit.
The role of cognitive factors and personality traits in the perception of illusory self-motion (vection)
TLDR
The results show that vection can be altered by cognitive factors and that individual traits can affect the perception of vection, suggesting that vections is not a purely perceptual phenomenon, but can also be affected by top-down mechanisms.
A meta-analysis of the virtual reality problem: Unequal effects of virtual reality sickness across individual differences
TLDR
It is supported that VR sickness produces unequal effects across multiple individual differences, and these effects appear resilient across applications of VR programs, and further research is needed to develop theory and identify explanatory mechanisms that detail these relationships.

Sex differences in tolerance to visually-induced motion sickness.
TLDR
The results indicate that laboratory manipulations that are more provocative of MS reveal reliable sex differences, and higher MSS scores in women vs. men are found.
Brightness and contrast do not affect visually induced motion sickness in a passively-flown fixed-base flight simulator
TLDR
It is suggested that brightness and contrast do not modulate the induction of VIMS, and this conclusion may be limited to moderately provocative stimuli.
Motion sickness susceptibility fluctuates through the menstrual cycle.
TLDR
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.

TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review some of the more important factors governing motion sickness susceptibility, with an emphasis on the personal rather than physical stimulus factors.
Motion sickness susceptibility and related behavioral characteristics in men and women.
The incidence of motion sickness in a large (N = 3,618) college population was determined by means of a questionnaire. The test-retest reliability coefficient (0.84) suggested that the motion

The virtual reality head-mounted display Oculus Rift induces motion sickness and is sexist in its effects
TLDR
The results indicate that users of contemporary head-mounted display systems are at significant risk of motion sickness and that in relation to motion sickness these systems may be sexist in their effects.
Validating an Efficient Method to Quantify Motion Sickness
TLDR
The Fast MS Scale is a fast and valid method to obtain MS data and offers the possibility to record MS during stimulus presentation and to capture its time course, however, the FMS has some limitations.
Vection is the main contributor to motion sickness induced by visual yaw rotation: Implications for conflict and eye movement theories
TLDR
Results show that VIMS increases with vection strength, but that this relation varies among participants, and it is argued that a more detailed definition of the exact nature of the conflict is required to fully appreciate the relationship between vection and VIMs.
Visually Induced Motion Sickness Predicted by Postural Instability
TLDR
It is confirmed that postural instability precedes motion sickness and suggested that measures of postural motion may serve as reliable predictors of motion sickness, and potential applications of this research include the development of on-line diagnostic tools that will allow for the prevention ofmotion sickness in operational and training settings.
