Abstract
The cardinal signs and symptoms of motion sickness are malaise, pallor, (and or/flushing), cold sweating, abdominal discomfort, changes in gastric motility, and changes in levels of circulating hormones. Cardiovascular, respiratory, and other signs have also been reported, as have a variety of other sensations, feelings and performance changes. It is reasonable to think that motion sickness is basically the activation, by motion, of a poison-response mechanism.
