Abstract Efforts are being made toward the development of a vestibular implant. If such a device is to mimic the physiology of the vestibular system, it must first be capable of restoring a baseline or "rest" activity in the vestibular pathways and then modulating it according to the direction and velocity of head movements. The aim of this study was to assess whether a human subject could adapt to continuous electrical stimulation of the vestibular system, and whether it was possible to elicit artificial smooth oscillatory eye movements via modulation of the stimulation.
