Abstract
A series of human and animal experiments have investigated the characteristics of mechanical neurological and subjective sensory response of the vestibular system to real movement stimuli, with the intention of describing the basic capabilities of the system and the failure of these capabilities to match the extended movement environment of flight and space. This approach has led to investigations of reflex motor responses to the afferent stimulus, in oculomotor and skeletal muscular systems. Currently, two additional areas are under study at the Unit, namely, the sensory response to visual stimuli and the neural control of functional muscle movements.
