The vestibulo-ocular reflex of normal monkeys was tested by a modified Bárány spinning test (B-test) and by sinosoidal rotation. The two tests gave concordant estimates of the time constant and corner frequency. Deviation from concordance was caused largely by modification of the reflex during the testing procedures. As a means of estimating both time constant and corner frequency in the vestibulo-ocular reflex, the B-test is to be preferred to sinusoidal rotation because although both tests provide similar information, the B-test is the more rapidly performed and analyzed and the B-test modifies the reflex less.
