Abstract : This paper describes experiments in which the susceptibility of both cats and squirrel monkeys to motion sickness induced by visual stimulation is documented. In addition, it is shown that in both species those individual subjects most highly susceptible to sickness induced by passive motion are also those most likely to become motion sick from visual (optokinetic) stimulation alone.
