This experiment attempted to see whether prolonged exposure to an optical correlate of a rotated head position could produce stereoscopic after-effects similar to those which follow genuine head rotation. To do this a wedge prism was used to simulate head rotation, with head and body posture confined to the median plane. The results show an overall significant difference under simulated head rotation condition, but no differences as a function of eye dominance or direction of simulated head turn.
