We found that inertial motion direction discrimination was biased in the direction of gaze; e.g., the same translations were judged more often towards the right when eye direction was to the right. Gaze effects have been reported on spatial localization tasks. We hypothesize that systematic errors occur when eye- head- or trunk-referenced frames deviate from their natural configurations during behavior. This is consistent with a top-down contextual influence on bottom-up sensory processing.
