Internal models of verticality: neuromodulation by suspended walking and tilted virtual reality immersion? - https://doi.org/10.1016/j.neucli.2016.09.087
The search for techniques to modulate the sense of verticality is an important challenge for the rehabilitation of balance disorders associated with lateropulsion or retropulsion (stroke, Parkinson's, etc.). In this pilot study in healthy subjects, we tested two techniques likely to modulate the sense of verticality: immersion in a tilted virtual room (visual information) and suspended walking (somesthetic information).
