Abstract

The visual system is considered to make a limited contribution to the maintenance of the upright posture, but is available for elaboration of postural stability, that is, for minimizing body oscillations while standing. These experiments investigated the roles of the visual framework in maintaining an upright posture. Body oscillations were measured as the deviation of the center of gravity using a gravicorder. The results were as follows. Both the area and the total length of the trace of body sway increased with the distance between the body and the wall. The standing posture also became unstable as an upper part of the wall inclined in the direction of the subject. Women were more affected than men under both conditions. These results indicate that the visual framework perceived peripherally plays an important role in postural stability while standing upright.
