Abstract

Orienting otolith-ocular reflexes were assessed in rabbits using static tilt, off-vertical axis rotation (OVAR) and sinusoidal oscillation about earth-horizontal axes. In all paradigms, head pitch produced ocular counter-pitch and vergence, and head roll produced ocular counter-roll and conjugate yaw version. Thus, vergence and version are essential components of orienting reflexes along the naso-occipital and bitemporal axes. Vergence and version caused misalignment between the axes of eye and head movement during pitch and roll head movements. Semicircular canal input broadened the band-pass of these orienting reflexes, which would make them more appropriate when compensating for head movement during active motion. © 2001 Elsevier Science Ltd.
