Abstract : The bibliography was compiled from Soviet open sources published 1955-1966 together with 5 Western sources. It is the first report in a series and deals with the effect of angular, impact, and Coriolis accelerations on the vestibular mechanism. The bibliography is divided into two sections. The first section consists of 112 items which are considered of primary interest. The second part contains 27 items considered of secondary interest because they contain elementary or background information or had only a few relevant paragraphs. Pertinent information includes: diagnostic value of labyrinthine reactions, changes in the frequency spectrum of an encephalogram during vestibular and optokinetic stimulation, cortical regulation of vestibular reactions, stimulation of the vestibular apparatus of a dog, development of conditioned vestibular reflexes, biological and physiological studies in rocket and satellite flights, physiological effects of gravitation, spatial orientation, equipment for study of the vestibular analyzer, effect of prolonged acceleration, motion sickness, vestibular training.
