Abstract
The results of anatomical, physiological, and biochemical experiments designed to provide the basic information required to understand the neural mechanisms underlying visual and vestibular interactions are described. The results of experiments involving both single-cell recording and anatomical methods are discussed by examining the parts of the brain which convey visual information to the vestibular system. Also described are a set of experiments designed to delineate the parts of the brain which are active under conditions of natural and of excessive vestibular stimulations and which delineate the parts of the brain that are active during conditions of visual-vestibular interaction and of visual-vestibular conflict.
