Publication year 2011 Abstract The most cited theory on motion sickness is the conflict theory by Reason and Brand (1975) , stating that motion sickness occurs due to a conflict between the senses and stored patterns of motion. In addition, there seems to be evidence for another theory stating that postural instability is a necessary and sufficient condition preceding motion sickness (Riccio and Stoffregen, 1991 ). A number of additional observations reviewed in this paper, however, are nuancing the relationship at issue, thus devaluating the latter theory. Moreover, a central mechanism as assumed before (Bos and Bles, 2002 ), driving both our posture and motion sickness symptoms, may explain why and when postural instability is correlated with sickness, and when it is not. © 2011 Elsevier B.V.
