This study examined the effect of adaptation training on simulation sickness. Ten control group participants completed a single self-propelled rotation simulation (SRS) trial and then were exposed to a virtual reality (VR) device and an optokinetic rotating drum (OKN). Ten experimental group participants were exposed to 5 trials over 5 days of the SRS and then to the VR and OKN devices. All 3 of these types of exposures (SRS, VR, and OKN) are known to produce conditions of simulation sickness. The results showed a significant main effect of adaptation training as a function of prior SRS exposure. These findings demonstrate the feasibility of developing a transfer of training paradigm for the acquisition of adaptation from one motion sickness producing condition to another.
