The torsional eye movements elicited by sinusoidal galvanic vestibular stimulation (GVS) (0.012-3.13 Hz) were examined in healthy humans. GVS consistently induced sinusoidal modulation of the torsional slow phase velocity (SPV), which was linearly related to stimulus intensity. At low frequencies (< 0.1 Hz) nystagmic responses could be discriminated from an underlying 'tonic' modulation of eye position, which was prominent in some, but negligible in other subjects, and was not correlated with… CONTINUE READING
