There is considerable evidence that lower-limb somatosensation contributes to the control of upright balance. In this study, we investigated the specific role of foot sole cutaneous afferents in the generation of balance corrections following lateral accelerations of the support surface. Participants were subjected to balance perturbations before and after targeted anesthesia of the cutaneous soles induced by intradermal injections of local anesthetic. Subject responses were quantified in terms… CONTINUE READING
