An asymmetry of the vestibulo-ocular reflex is observed after unilateral posterior cortical lesions in human. The co-occurrence of vestibular deficits and visuo-spatial disorders suggests a functional link between the representation and update of space and the integration of vestibular information in the occipito-parieto-temporal cortex of the right hemisphere.
