The vestibular system is the only organ controlled by positive feedbacks in human. Since it calculates the exact positional signals of the head, it analogizes three dimensional relationships between the human body and the objects in a real space, and it helps the ability to correct object’s clear vision and postures. A certain quantity of external stimulation such as rotation, galvanic, temperature, pressure and sounds is given to observe the responses of effectors and to be able to figure out the characteristics of nervous system. The rotation stimulation would be used the most exquisite input data. In the vestibular system, there is a range that responses to linear frequency, hence reasonable rotation stimulation can be applied as a stabilized evaluation tool for vestibular science. In this article, it explains how the rotational stimulation affects the vestibular system and how it will distinguish its significance.
