Abstract
The study of vection provides a way to investigate the role of visual factors in mechanisms of spatial orientation and postural control. The report describes seven experiments that were conducted to investigate some fundamental properties of vection. The seven experiments described are as follows: (1) Vection and Illusory Self-tilt as a Function of body Posture and Axis of Scene Rotation. (2) The Influence of a Stationary Frame on Vection and Illusory Body Tilt. (3) Illusory Pitch and Roll in a Rotating Room. (4) The Effects of Read Body Rotation on Illusory Roll and Pitch. (5) Illusory Body Pitch and Asymmetries of Vertical Optokinetic Nystagmus. (6) Vection as a Function of Foreground-Background Relationships. (7) Effects of Stationary Objects on Illusory Forward Self-motion.
