Abstract

The importance of the head as reference in dynamic control of balance is supported by evidence that the head itself supports three type of sensors: the vestibular system, which is sensitive both to gravity forces and head itself accelerations; vision, which is able to stabilise the head and the body with respect to the external space; and the neck muscle’s proprioceptive input which conveys the position of the head with respect to the trunk providing an ‘error signal’ to central vestibular system in order to optimise vestibulo-spinal control.
