[Epub ahead of print] Note: The authors report that by creating a situation such that angular vestibulo-ocular reflex and optokinetic nystagmus stimulations were in opposition and at low intensity, motion sickness could be habituated rapidly and for a prolonged period. From the paper: "In this study, we used a new approach, in which opposing visual and vestibular stimuli at low stimulus velocities (5-20*/s) and a low frequency (0.017 Hz) were used for habituation, a stimulus that was non-stressful, fast, effective, and long lasting."
