Postural Sway of Human Infants while Standing in Light and Dark.
Ashmead, Daniel H.; McCarty, Michael E.
Child Development, v62 n6 p1276-87 Dec 1991
Postural sway was measured in 12- to 14-month-old infants and adults while they were standing in the light and dark. Infants did not sway significantly more in the dark than in the light, whereas adults did. These findings indicate that early regulation of standing posture does not depend on visual information.
