Optic flow is essential for the perception of self motion and the control of path integration during locomotion. Inverting prisms oriented 15° off vertical in the roll plane were used to experimentally distort optic flow during locomotion. Depending on the direction in which the prisms were rotated, optic flow was diagonally upward to the right or upward to the left. A reproducible deviation of gait toward the direction of perceived optic flow was found in ten healthy subjects. This deviation… CONTINUE READING
