Abstract
It has been reported that, when rotated with eyes closed at constant velocity about an Earth-horizontal axis, with the body's Z-axis, aligned with the rotatory axis (barbecue split stimulation), most subjects perceive the bodily motion to be a translation about a circle without any rotation (ferris wheel illusion).
