Abstract : The study is concerned primarily with three general classes of stress: (1) Unusual patterns of motion to which an observer may be subjected; (2) various agents which may be ingested, inhaled, or contacted; and (3) aspects of the visual world itself, such as excessively high light levels. Emotional stresses are of obvious importance, but these are not treated extensively in the report.
