  • 5. Caloric Nystagmus: a standard test in medicine• Warm fluid evokes typical sequence of rapid and slow eye movements• Explained by density-related fluid flow by Robert Bárány (Nobel prize in 1915)• However, caloric nystagmus can also be elicited in the absence of gravity 3D-ETD• So, the mechanisms are still unclear…. Clarke & Scherer (1988) after 100 years of research on Earth! Folie 5
