Coriolis effect (perception)

Coriolis effect (perception)

In psychophysical perception, the Coriolis effect is the misperception of body orientation and induced nausea due to the Coriolis force (also referred to as the Coriolis illusion).[1][2][3][4] The Coriolis effect is a concern of pilots, where it can cause extreme disorientation.[5][6][7][8]
