“Swaying the audience: Postural precursors of motion sickness”
Synopsis: In recent years there has been increasing evidence that motion sickness should be thought of as a movement disorder rather than a perceptual disorder. Previous research (Smart et al. 2014) has shown that the postural sway of people who will eventually become motion sick exhibit different sway patterns than people who remain well prior to symptoms. Our current research is examining whether there is something inherently disruptive about these sway patterns and can they be used to predict motion sickness in real time
