The hypothesis that posture is a facilitator toward supra-postural behaviors and that it is our supra-postural goals that influence behavior, not just sensory stimulation, was studied. Variations in looking distance were examined in an `online' manner between a near and far fixation distance. The looking task between fixating a blank target was also varied, including counting letters in a block of text. Results show that constraints on visual performance can adaptively influence the control of standing posture.
