• behavior
  • There is some evidence that people with Asian ancestry get motion sickness more frequently compared with people of European ancestry, and there are situational and behavioral factors, such as whether a passenger has a view of the road ahead, and diet and eating behavior. (wikipedia.org)
  • inner ear
  • The disorder apparently stems from the contradictory data relayed to the brain during such motions by the eyes and by the balance centre within the nonacoustic portion of the inner ear , which must be functional for symptoms to develop. (britannica.com)
  • In this case scenario, the brain is receiving conflicting messages from the eyes(signals that the body is stationary) and the inner ear (signaling that the body is in motion). (hubpages.com)
  • This motion signal correlates with the signals from the inner ear and the muscles. (hubpages.com)
  • When feeling motion but not seeing it (for example, in a ship with no windows), the inner ear transmits to the brain that it senses motion, but the eyes tell the brain that everything is still. (wikipedia.org)
  • The inner ear is particularly important in the maintenance of balance and equilibrium because it contains sensors for both angular (rotational) and linear motion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mild
  • If people recommend pressure wrist bands and/or taking ginger, please know that those seem to work best for really mild motion sickness, and not for those of us who get really ugly motion sick, so you need to figure out how bad yours is. (couples.com)
  • compilation
  • Documenting the I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning tours from the first half of 2005, Motion Sickness is a compilation of live tracks, including covers of Feist and Elliott Smith. (wikipedia.org)
  • exposure
  • Motion sickness comprises a constellation of symptoms resulting from sudden exposure to periodic unnatural accelerations. (britannica.com)
  • Motion sickness may result from exposure to swinging, turning, rocking, or up-and-down movements. (britannica.com)
  • After a few more minutes of exposure to motion, electrical rhythms in the muscles of the stomach accelerate markedly from a normal three cycles per minute to as much as nine per minute. (britannica.com)
  • Disorders particularly associated with diving include those caused by variations in ambient pressure, such as barotraumas of descent and ascent, decompression sickness and those caused by exposure to elevated ambient pressure, such as some types of gas toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
  • eyes
  • Generally, unless vision is used to "lock" onto the horizon or to engage in activities resulting in distraction, there is less tendency to motion sickness if the eyes are closed. (britannica.com)
  • For example, one should always sit facing forward instead of backwards so that the eyes and the ears get similar signals which may help to avoid motion sickness. (hubpages.com)
  • Basically, focusing the eyes on what is at a distance and in motion will inhibit motion sickness from occurring rather than focusing on something stationary like a book when the signals from the rest of the body are that one is in motion. (hubpages.com)
  • avoid
  • For example, in a plane this would be the center aisle or stay in the center of a boat to avoid sea-sickness. (hubpages.com)
  • feel
  • This was caused by the offset between the simulated motion in VR and the lack of real motion, as the inner Sense of balance wouldn't feel the appropriate forces and turns. (wikipedia.org)
