Inactivation of semicircular canals causes adaptive increases in oto-
lith-driven tilt responses. J Neurophysiol 87: 16351640, 2002;
10.1152/jn.00775.2001. Growing experimental and theoretical evi-
dence suggests a functional synergy in the processing of otolith and
semicircular canal signals for the generation of the vestibulo-ocular
reflexes (VORs). In this study we have further tested this functional
interaction by quantifying the adaptive changes in the otolith-ocular
