We investigated high-resolution mental imagery and mental rotation, while the participants received caloric vestibular stimulation. High-resolution visual mental imagery tasks have been shown to activate early visual cortex, which is deactivated by vestibular input. Thus, we predicted that vestibular stimulation would disrupt high-resolution mental imagery; this prediction was confirmed. In addition, mental rotation tasks have been shown to activate posterior parietal cortex, which is also engaged in the processing of vestibular stimulation. As predicted, we also found that mental rotation is impaired during vestibular stimulation. In contrast, such stimulation did not affect performance of a low-imagery control task. These data document previously unsuspected interactions between the vestibular system and the high-level visual system.
