Abstract

We studied the horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during transient, high-acceleration (1900-7100 degrees/s2) head rotations in 4 human subjects. Such stimuli perturbed the angle of gaze and caused illusory movement of a viewed target (oscillopsia). The disturbance of gaze could be attributed to the latency of the VOR (which ranged from 6-15 ms) and inadequate compensatory eye rotations (median VOR gain ranged from 0.61-0.83).
