Jump to: navigation, search

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 for pilots, where it can cause extreme disorientation.[5][6][7][8]
