Abstract

We studied the gain of smooth ocular tracking for visual, vestibular and arthrokinetic cues, in combination as well as separately, in order to examine how these multisensory cues influence tracking performance. By use of motion along a linear track (besides the self-evident visual influence) evidence was found for arthrokinetic and vestibular enhancement of smooth ocular tracking. These results were in close correspondence with the results of our former study about arthrokinetic influence on linear self-motion perception. Therefore, we conclude that information from the limbs about linear (self-)movement has analogous characteristics and generates analogous responses to the information about angular (self-)movement.
