He omits the caloric reaction, since it is not a normal physiologic stimulus, and confines his studies to the reactions following turning or falling. These are divided into three groups: (1) the reactions induced by vertical rectilinear movements, (2) reactions from rotation and (3) reactions resulting from movements with relation to the force of gravity. All these reactions are studied under the following contrasting circumstances: (1) in normal animals, (2) in normal human beings, (3) in decorticated animals, (4) in animals with one or both labyrinths removed, (5) in
