Activity of vestibular nerve fibers and eye movements were recorded in the alert monkey during natural stimulation. The animal was rotated about a vertical axis in the dark with velocity trapezoids (vestibular), or a striped cylinder was rotated around the stationary monkey (optokinetic), or these stimuli were combined. After velocity steps in the dark, neuronal activity declined with a dominant time constant of 5–6 s. The time constant of nystagmus recorded simultaneously was always longer, on… CONTINUE READING
