Effect of head position on postural orientation and equilibrium

  title={Effect of head position on postural orientation and equilibrium},
  author={Crista L. Barberini and Jane M. Macpherson},
  journal={Experimental Brain Research},
This study examined (1) how changes in head position affect postural orientation variables during stance and (2) whether changes in head position affect the rapid postural response to linear translation of the support surface in the horizontal plane. Cats were trained to stand quietly on a moveable platform and to maintain five different head positions: center, left, right, up, and down. For each head position, stance was perturbed by translating the support surface linearly in 16 different… CONTINUE READING
