The ability to integrate sensation with action is considered an important factor underlying the development of upright stance and locomotion. While many have studied sensory influences on posture, the nature of these influences and how they change with development have yet to be thoroughly characterized in infancy. Six infants were examined from 1 month prior to walk onset until 9 months of independent walking experience while standing quietly and touching either a static or a dynamic surface… CONTINUE READING
