A computational model was developed to study the response of vestibular fluid to body motions, relating eye movement to vestibular displacement. The response in the semicircular canals (SCCs) and otolith organs were approximated as a torsional pendulum and a forced wave equation, respectively. The results of the math model were found to be consistent with results found in previous models. The results of the model will also be compared to those found experimentally using VALUS, a rotational platform updated to be used for vestibular testing.
