Controlling visually induced self-motion perception: effect of overlapping dynamic visual noise

Journal of Physiological Anthropology and Applied Human Science
Hiroyuki Ito, Hiroshi Takano


The effect of overlapping dynamic visual noise on visually induced self-motion perception (vection) by upward or downward optical flow was tested. The dynamic visual noise consisted of rapidly refreshed sparse random dots. Binocular disparity of the overlapping noise plane was varied. The results showed that when the noise was presented on the flow plane or on a plane farther than the flow plane, vection was totally impaired. This demonstrates that dynamic visual noise is functionally equivalent to static patterns in the vection suppression effect. A possibility of dynamic visual noise as a vection suppressor in an application on a 3-D display is discussed in relation to simulator sickness.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Head And Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinomas account for >90% of all tumors in the head and neck region. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma incidence has increased dramatically recently with little improvement in patient outcomes. Here is the latest research on this aggressive malignancy.
