Posture, Movement and Locomotion
Postural activity is the complex result of integrated orientation and motion information from visual, vestibular and somatosensory inputs. These inputs collectively contribute to a sense of body orientation relative to the Earth or other support surface and, additionally, coordinate body muscle activities that are largely automatic and independent of conscious perception and, in some cases, voluntary control (Figure 5-01).
