Perception of tilt (somatogravic illusion) in response to sustained linear acceleration is generally attributed to the otolithic system which reflects either a translation of the head or a reorientation of the head with respect to gravity (tilt/translation ambiguity). The main aim of this study was to compare the tilt perception during prolonged static tilt and translation between 8 and 20 degrees of tilt relative to the gravitoinertial forces (i.e., G and GIF, respectively) when the semicircular cues were no more available. An indirect measure of tilt perception was estimated by means of a visual and kinesthetic judgment of the gravitational horizon. The main results contrast with the interpretation regarding the tilt/translation ambiguity as the same orientation relative to the shear forces G for the true tilt or GIF in the centrifuge did not induce the same horizon perception. Visual adjustment and arm pointing in the centrifuge were always above the ones observed in a G environment. Part of the lowering of the judgment in the centrifuge may be related to the mechanical effect of GIF on the effectors as shown by the shift of the egocentric coordinates in the direction of GIF. The role of the extravestibular graviceptors in the judgment of the degree of tilt of one's own body relative to G or GIF was discussed.
