Abstract
Yaw vection is induced by a scene rotating about the spinal axis (z axis), pitch vection by a scene rotating about an axis in the mid-frontal plane (y axis) and roll vection by a scene rotating about an axis parallel to the line of sight (x axis). Each of these axes can be vertical or horizontal, making six conditions in all, of which only four have been studied previously. We studied vection and illusory body tilt under all six conditions, with a full rotating field, reduced somesthetic cues and in a situation in which body rotation could occur.
