During constant-velocity rotation about a tilted axis (OVAR), the VOR and the rotation perception last indefinitely, but show a striking dependency on tilt angle. We show that, during OVAR, a variety of motions can account for the head motion relative to gravity. Some of these are in conflict with canal signals, but correspond to a lower angular velocity; we suggest that the brain performs a trade-off in order to select the best motion. We show that this theory explains the effect of tilt angle on velocity estimation during OVAR.
