Professor Wing will review a series of studies of reactive and predictive sensory motor control underlying static and dynamic balance. He will describe the use of horizontal forces applied to the pelvis to disturb balance, and summarise findings on hip muscle function for LR balance in stroke hemiparesis and normal controls. He will describe various roles for the hand in standing balance. Finally he will consider whether keeping balanced is attention demanding.
