    Disturbances of body orientation perception after brain lesions may specifically relate to only one dimension of space. Stroke patients with “pusher syndrome” suffer from a severe misperception of their body's orientation in the coronal (roll) plane. They experience their body as...

    We investigated the relative weighting of vestibular, optokinetic and podokinetic (foot and leg proprioceptive) cues for the perception of self-turning in an environment which was either stationary (concordant stimulation) or moving (discordant stimulation) and asked whether cue weighting...

    Multisensory interactions between haptics and vision remain poorly understood. Previous studies have shown that shapes, such as letters of the alphabet, when drawn on the skin, are differently perceived dependent upon which body part is stimulated and on how the stimulated body part, such as the...

    Background: The subjective straight ahead (SSA), a measure of the representation of body orientation, has been shown to be shifted to the lesion side in neglect patients, and to be influenced by stimulation of sensory systems involved in postural control. Method: This study investigates the...

    Pigeons were exposed to optokinetic stimulation in the plane of the horizontal semicircular canals with an angular velocity of 10°/sec with normal head orientation in space during lateral tilting by 30° (dynamic tilting), after tilting (static tilting), and during rotation of the head to...

    Stroke patients with "pusher syndrome" show severe misperception of their own upright body orientation although visualvestibular processing is almost intact. This dissociation argues for a second graviceptive system in humans for the perception of body orientation. Recent studies revealed that...

    The propensity to experience circular vection (the illusory perception of self-turning evoked by a rotating scene, CV) as reflected by its onset latency exhibits considerable interindividual variation. Models of CV nascensy have linked this delay to the time it takes the visual-vestibular...

    We investigated the influence of vestibular (caloric ear irrigation) and visual (optokinetic) stimulation on slow and fast split-belt walking. The velocity of one belt was fixed (1.5 or 5.0�6.0 km/h) and subjects ( N = 8 for vestibular and N = 6 for visual experiments) were asked to adjust...
