Stimulation vestibulaire et visuelle : perception simultanée ou pas ?

Abstract The human brain is able to consider that two sensory stimuli are synchronous while they activate the cortex with some delay because they follow different neurological pathways. This process is only possible if the time interval between the two stimuli does not exceed a certain limit, called "Temporal Binding Window" (TBW). Studies of this parameter, involving the vestibular perception, are difficult because subjects must be moved, which generates parasitic proprioceptive information. By cons, in patients equipped with a vestibular implant, it is possible to generate a vestibular perception selectively by electrical stimulation of the vestibular nerve. These patients are therefore an unique model to study the TBW between visual and vestibular perception.
