Abstract

The result of studies examining the effectiveness of vestibular stimulation as a form of sensory stimulation were reviewed. The review employed recently developed quantitative methods that treat the literature review process as a unique type of research. Forty-one studies were located that employed some form of vestibular stimulation as the independent accepted standards of empirical inquiry in the behavioral and biomedical sciences and were included in the review. The 18 studies contained a total of 44 hypothesis tests that evaluated the efficacy of vestibular stimulation as a form of sensory enrichment designed to facilitate various developmental parameters. An analysis of the results of these tests, using methods of meta-analysis, revealed that subjects receiving vestibular stimulation performed significantly better that members of control or comparison groups who did not receive such stimulation.
