Effects of postural stability on the transfer of learned movement control strategies

Conference: 2013 Graduate Engineering Annual Research & Recruiting Symposium (CU-Boulder)
Abstract: We investigated whether stability affects the learning and/or transfer of human postural control strategies. Subjects learned novel postural control strategies in a more stable standing configuration and then transferred to a less stable configuration, or vice versa. Initial learning was not affected by stability. However, transfer of learned control from one context to another was affected by the change in stability between contexts. These results suggest that in rehabilitation it is important to consider the context in which task learning occurs, as well as the context in which the task will be performed in the future.
