Subjective estimates of passive whole-body rotations in darkness were evaluated before and after exposure to asymmetrical incoherent visual- vestibular stimulation (VVS). Two subjects who showed large capacity for adaptation to symmetrical incoherent VVS were enrolled in the study. Strikingly, after 45 min of asymmetrical left-right VVS, perception of rotation decreased equally for rotations to the right and to the left indicating that the calibration of vestibular sensory input for spatial orientation did not undergo a directional specific control.
