We replicated the classic study of Lishman & Lee (1973) in virtual reality to determine factors of kinesthesis, the sense of self-movement. This sense can originate either visually or biomechanically. Our study shows that visual stimuli can produce an illusion of self-movement (called vection) rather easily, overriding biomechanical cues. We reproduced part but not all of Lishman & Lee's results.
