See Table 6.1.
|Background||Motion sickness may arise from conflicting rest frames, rather than from conflicting motion cues per se. The visual rest frame is heavily influenced by the visual background.|
|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 instability and post-exposure reported simulator sickness.|
|Results||Both postural instability (p < .03) and SSQ (p < .05) were significantly lower with a stationary visual background.|
|Conclusions||The results support the hypothesis.|
