Abstract : Two independent groups of normal human subjects were exposed to a number of long-duration (up to 96 sec), relatively high-intensity (3 degrees/sec sq - 24 degrees/sec sq) constant, angular accelerations. Nystagmic decrements during stimulation were clearly evident. The decrements were initiated at about the same time after stimulus onset (30-35 sec) for all accelerations used. The decrements in the nystagmic responses were compared to related findings for both subjective and electrophysiological responses. (Author)
