In order to elucidate the role of the “starting point” in path integration, normal subjects underwent a self-rotational task in a motor-driven turntable rotating around an earth-vertical axis. They were passively rotated (“stimulus”) and had to return to the starting point, controlling the direction and velocity of the turntable by means of a joystick (“response”). The test included conditions with an earth-fixed target (EFT) as starting point, shown before the stimulus, and conditions without… CONTINUE READING
