Abstract

Field-independent and -dependent individuals performed a test of dynamic balance (stabilometer) under four different vision conditions (ns = 8), including vision, intermittent vision, no vision, and tilted visual field. Analyses indicated no significant difference between the field-independent and dependent groups on the balance task. Performance on the task was optimal when continuous visual cues were present. Participants were less stable when only intermittent visual cues were available and least stable when no visual cues were available.
