Bicycle Wheel & Rotating Stool

MIT Physics lecture demonstration:
DYNAMICS - Conservation of Angular Momentum
The demonstrator sits on a rotating stool and holds a spinning bicycle wheel equipped with handles on each end of its axle. The wheel is held in a vertical plane passing through the axis of the stool. If the spinning wheel is turned into a horizontal plane, the stool will rotate in the opposite sense to the spin of the wheel.

What forces from the wheel are causing the rotation of the guy?
