Abstract Cutaneously-recorded electrogastrograms (EGGs) were obtained from 21 healthy volunteers who were seated within a drum, the rotation of which produced vection or illusory self-motion. Fourteen subjects developed symptoms of motion sickness during vection and in each the EGG frequency shifted from the normal 3 cpm to 5-8 cpm, tachygastria, an abnormal pattern. In 6 of 7 asymptomatic subjects, the 3 cpm EGG pattern was unchanged during vection. It was concluded that illusory self-motion produces tachygastria and motion sickness in susceptible subjects.
