    Abstract

    We compared vection (visually induced illusory self-motion perception) among elementary school children and adults by measuring latency to onset, cumulative duration, and estimated strength of vection. Significantly stronger vection with shorter latency was observed in children compared with adults. Several possible causes (eg size-difference of the effective visual field) of the age-related differences are discussed.
