Title: Sensorial And Cognitive Aspects Of Postural Control [aspectos Sensoriais E Cognitivos Do Controle Postural]
Author: Carvalho R.L.
Almeida G.L.
Abstract: The postural stabilization are subserved by multiple sensory and motor mechanisms, ranging from relatively simple, peripheral mechanisms to complex ones involving the highest levels of cognitive function and sensory-motor integration. The reflex/hierarchical concept of postural control has changed to a systems approach, which emphasizes a goal-directed neural organization of multiple, interacting systems. However, there is some discussion about how sensory information and cognitive processing are organized to control balance. To answer these questions, this paper reviews the biomechanics, sensorial and cognitive aspects of postural control.
