Abstract : Measurements of ocular counterrolling by the photographic method provide specific and valid otolith function information. The precision of the test method has extended the usefulness of ocular counterrolling as an indicator of otolith function of individuals with severe macular destruction as well as normals subjected to conditions which act physiologically to deafferent these organs such as near weightlessness of aerospace flight.
