    • Thank you for sharing this information. This PR circulated widely across the ‘net following the publication of a research article titled, “Readaptation of the vestibulo-ocular reflex relieves the mal de debarquement syndrome”. See the Journal Reference in the article you shared for the link to the research paper.
