|Background||Experiment AIIIE1 found an effect for a stationary visual background reducing simulator side-effects. But this reduction might disappear if attention is forced into the visual foreground.|
|Hypothesis||A visual background in agreement with inertial cues should reduce simulator side-effects, even if the visual foreground is not in agreement with inertial cues.|
|Methods||A circular vection stimuli was provided both with and without a stationary visual background. Measures included per-exposure postural in stability and post-exposure reported simulator sickness. A visual task forced attention into the visual foreground.|
|Results||Postural instability was significantly lower with a stationary visual background (p < .03).|
|Conclusions||The results support the hypothesis.|
