Abstract:

This is a collection of papers presented at the International Workshop on Posture, Balance and the Brain, held on 13th September 2014 at the School of Physical Education and Sport Sciences, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki, Greece. The idea for this workshop emerged after the visit of Prof. Vassilia Hatzitaki from Motor Control and Learning Laboratory in Sofia on the invitation of our research team for the project “Cortical Regulation of the Quiet Stance during Sensory Conflict,” supported by the National Science Fund (NSF), Ministry of Education, Youth and Science, Republic of Bulgaria, Grant TK 02/60. Standing balance plays a major supportive role in daily life, professional and sport activities. While most healthy adults take this ability for automatic and granted, stance maintenance is very complex and can be a major challenge for older persons, those living with pathologies or those moving across extreme environmental conditions. Over the past decade there has been remarkable progress in the field of standing, especially concerning cortical control of standing balance, reflected in this volume.
