Following ear stimulation with water (left ear):
- cold water (cooler than body temperature), a right-beating nystagmus (directed toward the opposite ear) results
- warm water (warmer than body temperature), a left-beating nystagmus (directed toward the same left ear) occurs
Similar, but oppositely-directed responses occur for the right ear.
