SUMMARY AND CONCLUSIONS INTRODUCTION
I. The adaptive plasticity of the vestibuloocular reflex (VOR)
following a selective lesion of the peripheral vestibular organs was
investigated in rhesus monkeys whose lateral semicircular canals
were inactivated by plugging of the canal lumen in both ears. Gain
and phase of horizontal, vertical, and torsional slow-phase eye
velocity were determined from three-dimensional eye movement
recordings obtained acutely after the plugging operation, as well
as in regular intervals up to 10 mo later.
2. Acutely after plugging, horizontal VOR was minimal during
yaw rotation with gains of
