Visual-vestibular interaction refers to the combining of sensory signals from the vestibular apparatus with visual information from the retina to assist in the control of posture, locomotion and eye movements. Visual-vestibular Interaction: Basic Science to Clinical Relevance. Posted in Clinical Review Article on 20th Sep Summary. The visual and vestibular systems together mediate the reflex and perceptual functions required for efficient postural balance and spatial orientation in the light or the dark. Abstract. The sensation of self-motion is a common visual illusion which allows inferences concerning visual-vestibular interaction. It may be perceived while gazing at moving clouds, streaming water, or when a train moves on the adjacent track in a railway by: A simplified model for visual-vestibular interaction in the control of horizontal eye movements during angular and linear body accelerations is shown in FigIt has been obtained by adding the block representing otolith dynamics (OTS) to the model previously proposed by Schmid et al () for the case of body rotation. The two vestibulo-ocular reflexes are represented in the lower part of Cited by: 2.

How do we perceive our direction of self-motion through space? To navigate effectively through a complex three-dimensional (3-D) environment, we must accurately estimate our own motion relative to objects around us. Self-motion perception is a demanding problem in sensory integration, requiring the neural combination of visual signals (e.g., optic flow), vestibular signals regarding head Cited by: The visual vestibular interaction In Fig. 1 an outline of t he visual-vestibular syste m input to motion perception, the ocu lomotor system and posture control is presented 4.

The specific requirements or preferences of your reviewing publisher, classroom teacher, institution or organization should be applied. Sep 01,  · Inhibitory visual-vestibular interaction might protect visual perception of self-motion from potential vestibular mismatches caused by involuntary head accelerations during locomotion, and this would allow the dominant sensorial weight during self-motion perception to shift from one sensory modality to the by:

Visual-vestibular cue integration for heading perception: Applications of optimal cue integration theory. This lack of visual-vestibular convergence was also observed in vestibular-responsive areas of the thalamus Henn V. Visual-vestibular interaction in the flocculus of the alert monkey. II. Cited by: Add tags for "Visual-vestibular interaction: final report for NASA grant NAG ". Be the first. Multisensory convergence involves bimodal neurons which receive inputs from two or more modalities. The visual-vestibular perception of heading discussed above represents an example of multisensory convergence [15,16,17]. The second form of multisensory interaction is modulation by one sensory signal of the gain in a second sensory pathway. Nov 18,  · The connection between the vestibular system and the visual system is called the ocular motor reflex. When you are moving through space, your brain knows that your body is moving – even if your eyes do not. This reflex helps to keep you balanced and able to walk and coordinate your activities smoothly. This process is often quite complex.
