This study examined the effect of rotary auditory stimulation on postural control in the elderly. Thirty-two subjects aged over sixty were submitted to two rotary auditory stimulations, with a meaningful and a non-meaningful message, during a postural task. Although the non-meaningful task did not lead to postural control modification, the meaningful task allowed a reduction in the postural parameter values and therefore, a better stabilisation of posture. The attention, paid to the geography… CONTINUE READING
