Researchers Dr SA Palmisano; A/Prof R Allison

Brief description An improved understanding of self-motion perception and motion sickness in situations of sensory conflict will contribute significantly to scientific knowledge and theory. The findings of our experiments will aid in the development of fall-prevention and rehabilitation programs for the elderly and people recovering from sensory loss or impairment. Given the increasing motion complexity of modern environments, this project also has important practical applications for simulation and virtual reality environments, civil and military transportation, and even space travel. During the project a PhD student will be trained in measurement of self-motion perception and motion sickness, as well as eye-movement and gait analysis.
