Abstract : A direct relationship between duration of acceleration and (a) decline of response during acceleration, (b) rate of decline of response after acceleration, and (c) magnitude of secondary reaction is regarded as an indication of a central process which limits a prolonged vestibular primary reaction. The process is manifested by its influence on relatively basic reflex reactions (nystagmus) in the cat, and is more prominently manifested in man by its influence on sensory perception. (Author)
