Abstract : The exponent of 1.0 found previously for numerical magnitude estimates of angular velocity during passive rotation was validated by auditory cross-modality estimates. Acceleration intensities ranged from 3 degrees/sec sq to 24 degrees/sec sq, with durations varying from 10 sec. to 80 sec. It was concluded that adaptation evident in responses to the longer duration stimuli is a real phenomenon and of potential significance as one form of disorientation. (Author)
