The authors consider the process of adaptation of a torsion vestibulo-ocular reflex to the ordinary gravity conditions experienced by an astronaut after returning from a long orbital flight. To register the eyes motion a videooculographic system is employed. The presence of a significant delay of torsion eyes motion in response to the head motion is proved experimentally and growth of the coefficient of vestibulo-ocular reflex strengthening is noted.
