Abstract

The purpose of this study was to quantify the effects of repetitive Coriolis and cross-coupled stimulations, similar to the vestibular training the cosmonauts are exposed to prior to their spaceflight, on vestibular functionin control subjects on Earth. Ten volunteers were passively rotated in yawon a rotating chair while executing standardized pitch head-and-trunk movements. The chair stopped to change direction after 12 head-and-trunk movements were made. The runs were grouped in sessions of ten,which were repeateddaily for 10 days. The severity of motion sickness was assessed by subjective judgment and measurements of skin pallor and salivary total protein concentration, and nystagmus was recorded. The severity of motion sickness andnystagmus decreased during cosmonaut vestibular training (CVT). One month after the end of CVT, nystagmus responses were still about 20-30% lower than control values. These results indicate that CVT induces a habituation of vestibular responses. One important implication of this experiment concernsspace studies on cosmonauts who are exposed to such vestibular training prior to their spaceflight.
