EVERYONE knows that a rapid turning-about upon the heels usually leads to dizziness and that a like state is induced in the revolving chair or the turn-table of the laboratory or in the merry-go-round of street fairs. It is also known, especially among those who have attempted to analyze the complicated experience of dizziness, that an important constituent of this disturbed state of mind and body is a characteristic movement, to-and-fro, of the eyes. To this ocular twitching, which is… Expand
XXVII. An Analysis of the Effects of Repeated Bodily Rotation, with Especial Reference to the Possible Impairment of Static Equilibrium
TLDR
In 1906, Ruppert'" observed what might have been reasonably predicted on the basis of information available for decades, namely, that persons who have acquired immunity to vertigo through repeated turning also show little or no postrotational nystagmus. Expand
XXV Studies on Habituation of Vestibular Reflexes
It is known that repetrtive vestibular stimulation, rotatory or caloric, in both manl -t O and laboratory animalsll-20 produces a response decline-or habituation-of the nystagmic response. TheExpand
Studies on habituation of vestibular reflexes. I. Effect of repetitive caloric test.
TLDR
The evidence supports the opinion that the neural mechanism underlying habituation of vestibular reflexes is a central process and the locus of this mechanism remains unknown. Expand
Pica: A species relevant behavioral assay of motion sickness in the rat
TLDR
Pica is a naturally occurring response of the rat to illness, that might profitably be used to investigate the etiology of motion sickness and to screen for the emetic properties of drugs. Expand
STUDIES ON HABITUATION OF VESTIBULAR REFLEXES. VI. HABITUATION IN DARKNESS OF CALORICALLY INDUCED NYSTAGMUS, LATEROTORSION AND VERTIGO IN MAN.
TLDR
There was a growing dysrhythmia of nystagmus with increasing habituation and the mode of response decline of each of the four qualities showed considerable individual differences. Expand
XIII Modification of Vestibular Sensitivity in the Rat
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the spontaneous activity levels provide a sensitive behavioral measure of the effects of vestibular stimulation on the rat. Expand
Defecation as an index of motion sickness in the rat
Because defecation in response to body rotation in rats, although noted in a number of previous studies, had not been examined quantitatively, rats in the present two experiments were subjected to aExpand
Intrasession Decrement and Intersession Recovery to the Mueller-Lyer Figure
Conflicting reports have been published concerning the role of number of trials in producing decrement in the Mueller-Lyer illusion. Koehler and Fishback (1950 a, b) concluded that amount of bothExpand
Habituation: Events in the history of its characterization and linkage to synaptic depression. A new proposed kinetic criterion for its identification
TLDR
A kinetic analysis of experimental cases of habituation is made for different reflexes in a number of species, indicating the existence of two distinct subcategories of habituations: a slow and a fast version. Expand
Rebalancing the Vestibular System by Unidirectional Rotations in Patients With Chronic Vestibular Dysfunction
TLDR
The results show that unidirectional rotation can reduce the VOR imbalance and asymmetry in patients with previously compensated vestibular dysfunction and could be used as an effective supervised method for Vestibular rehabilitation even in patientswith longstanding vestibULAR dysfunction. Expand

THE RELIABILITY OF THE NYSTAGMUS TEST
TLDR
Otologists are being called on for examinations of the vestibular mechanism because in normal persons the average duration of the after-turning nystagmus is 24 seconds, and this duration came to be considered as one. Expand
