  1. airsickness

    Airsickness is a condition characterized by certain symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and sometimes vertigo, resulting from the motion and altitude changes experienced during air travel. It is a type of motion sickness caused by a disconnect between what the eyes see and what the inner ears, which help with balance, sense.

  1. Airsickness

    Airsickness is a sensation which is induced by air travel. It is a specific form of motion sickness, and is considered a normal response in healthy individuals. Airsickness occurs when the central nervous system receives conflicting messages from the body affecting balance and equilibrium. The inner ear is particularly important in the maintenance of balance and equilibrium because it contains sensors for both angular and linear motion. Airsickness is usually a combination of spatial disorientation, nausea and vomiting. Experimentally, airsickness can be eliminated in monkeys by removing part of the cerebellum, namely the nodulus of the vermis.
