The effects of state of alertness on the vestibulo-ocular reflex in normal subjects using the vestibular rotational chair.

Abstract

Twenty-four subjects with normal vestibular function underwent horizontal sinusoidal harmonic acceleration (SHA) and step-velocity rotational chair assessment twice, first in a heightened state-of-alertness, and second, in a low state-of-alertness. The effects of alertness on vestibulo-ocular reflex gain and time-constant (Tc) were then examined. Although… (More)
