How well can you hang a picture frame? – Dr Sharon Docherty, Bournemouth University
Our environment is full of information that allows our brain to make decisions about whether or not we are in an upright position. How we interpret this upright position (vertical) is based on the combination of signals our brain receives from the visual (eyes) and vestibular (inner ear) systems as well as muscles and joints throughout our body (proprioception).
This talk will outline what we know about how vertical is perceived in different age groups and also how it can be affected by clinical conditions such as neck pain and diabetes
