The present paper attempts to clarify the between-subjects variability exhibited in both segmental stabilisation strategies and their subordinated or associated sensory contribution. Previous data have emphasised close relationships between the interindividual variability in both the visual control of posture and the spatial visual perception. In this study, we focused on the possible relationships that might link perceptual visual field dependence–independence and the visual contribution to… 
Postural Adaptation of the Spatial Reference Frames to Microgravity: Back to the Egocentric Reference Frame
TLDR
A strong correlation between the mode of segmental stabilisation used and the perceptual typology (dependence - independence with respect to the visual field) of the subjects was reported and the results of this study show different subjects' typologies from those that use the forearm orientation in a mainly exo- to an egocentric reference frame for segmental stability.
Differential integration of visual and kinaesthetic signals to upright stance
TLDR
The present findings indicate that body leaning could provide a useful mean to assess the subject’s ability to use body-ground proprioceptive cues not only to improve postural stability during eyes opening (especially during forward leaning), but also as a mean to disclose subjects’ visual dependency and their associated difficulties to shift from visual to proprioception-based FOR.
Impaired vertical postural control and proprioceptive integration deficits in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The results suggest that Parkinson's disease is associated with proprioceptive impairment, which may be an important factor contributing to patients' postural deficits and the visual dependence observed in parkinsonian patients is re-defined as an adaptive strategy partly compensating for the impaired proprioception.
Postural control and sensory integration in cervical dystonia
TLDR
CD patients seem to ignore the sensory information skewed by the disease: their reference segment shifts from head to trunk and they tend to preferentially use proprioceptive information, suggesting the vestibular system might rather be involved in the pathophysiology of CD.
Individual differences in the ability to identify, select and use appropriate frames of reference for perceptuo-motor control
TLDR
It is hypothesized that a moderate challenge to balance should enhance subjects' reliance on VFoR, particularly in FD subjects, whereas a substantial challenge should constrain subjects to use a somatic-vestibular based FoR to prevent falling in which case IDs would vanish.
Is vertical postural orientation in weightlessness correlated with the subjects' perceptual typology?
TLDR
It is confirmed that the proprioceptive dominance of visual independent (VI) subjects enhances their ability to select the most appropriate reference frame to deal with inter-sensory disturbances such as those consisting here of microgravity combined with proprioception perturbations imposed at ankle level.
Differential integration of kinaesthetic signals to postural control
TLDR
The present findings suggest that the exploitation of the kinaesthetic relationships to postural control varied from one subject to another, hence evidencing the need to introduce differential approach to assess the general impact of preferential modes of spatial referencing in posturalcontrol.
Postural Strategies and Sensory Integration: No Turning Point between Childhood and Adolescence
TLDR
The results reported here confirmed the predominance of vision and the gradual mastery of somatosensory integration in postural control during a large period of ontogenesis including childhood and adolescence.
Head Stability and Head-Trunk Coordination in Horseback Riders: The Contribution of Visual Information According to Expertise
TLDR
The results showed that the Professional riders exhibited greater overall postural stability and specific coordination modes that, unlike the Club riders, departed from pure in-phase and anti-phase patterns and depended on visual conditions.
Effects of artificial feedback to the vestibular input on postural instability induced by asymmetric proprioceptive stimulation
TLDR
The hypothesis that galvanic vestibular input can provide the CNS with sufficient information relating to the current orientation of the body and this information can be used for postural stabilization is supported.

Differential Sensitivity to Static Visual Cues in the Control of Postural Equilibrium in Man
TLDR
No differences were observed in the differential sensitivity to static visual cues depending on subjects' sex or on previous physical training, as well as between trained and untrained subjects.
The effects of visual input on open-loop and closed-loop postural control mechanisms
TLDR
The use of stabilogram-diffusion analysis to examine how visual input affects the operational characteristics of open-loop and closed-loop postural control mechanisms and reflex-based feedback systems of healthy, young individuals suggests that they are organized in functionally equivalent ways.
Ontogenesis of head stabilization in space during locomotion in children: influence of visual cues
TLDR
The results suggest that the HSSS may be mainly of vestibular origin and presumably serves to facilitate the visual input processing, particularly that of the motion and peripheral visual cues which are involved in the control of body equilibrium during locomotion.
Voluntary head stabilization in space during oscillatory trunk movements in the frontal plane performed in weightlessness
TLDR
The main result was that head orientation with respect to vertical may be stabilized about the roll axis under μG with, as well as without vision, despite the reduction in vestibular afferent and muscle proprioceptive inputs, which seems to indicate that voluntary head stabilization does not depend crucially upon static vestibul afferents.
Visually controlled spatial stabilisation of the human head: Compensation for the eye's limited ability to roll
TLDR
The superior head stability in roll, dependent on a visual frame of reference, compensates for poverty of eye movement in this plane.
Visual stabilization of posture. Physiological stimulus characteristics and clinical aspects.
TLDR
The purpose of the present investigation was to obtain quantitative data in man by means of posturography of fore-aft and lateral body sway in relation to different visual stimulus characteristics, which demonstrates clinical relevance in patients with oculomotor disturbances.
Head stabilization during various locomotor tasks in humans
TLDR
In V subjects, head rotation was not found to be compensatory for head translation and the power spectrum analysis shows that head angular displacements in the sagittal plane contain mainly low frequencies (about 0.3–0.8 Hz).
Strategies of segmental stabilization during gait in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
PD patients generally had shorter step length, greater step width, and slower gait velocity than the healthy elderly, and head and shoulder angular movements around the roll axis that were more correlated than those of controls, confirming their more en bloc functioning.
