We have developed a horizontal plane head movement model to explore the interactions of the vestibulocollic (VCR) and cervicocollic (CCR) reflexes during trunk perturbations. The model was constructed utilizing parametric identification with physiological and biomechanical data. Control systems analyses enabled us to explain complex frequency response characteristics and assign functionality to these neck reflexes.
