Hunger enhances vertical vection

Journal Article

Abstract


  • Hunger was found to facilitate visually induced illusory upward and downward self-motions

    (vertical vection), but not illusory self-motion in depth (vection in depth). We propose that the origin

    of this hunger effect lies in the possibility that vertical self-motions (both real and illusory) are more

    likely to induce changes in visceral state.
