Paper Abstract

The objective was to analyze visually driven postural responses and characterize any non-linear behaviour. We recorded physiological responses for two adults, 260 trials each. The subjects maintained quite stance while fixating for four seconds within an immersive room, EON Icube, where the reference to the visual stimuli, i.e., the virtual platform, randomly oscillated in Gaussian orientation 90° and 270° for antero-posterior (AP), and, 0° and 180° for medio-lateral (ML) at three different frequencies (0.125, 0.25, and 0.5 Hz). We accomplished stationary derivatives of posture time series by taking the intrinsic mode functions (IMFs). The phase space plot of IMF shows evidence of the existence of non-linear attractors in both ML and AP. Correlation integral slope with increasing embedding dimension is similar to random white noise for ML, and similar to non-linear chaotic series for AP. Next, recurrence plots indicate the existence of more non-linearity for AP than that for ML. The patterns of the dots after 200th time stamp (near onset) appears to be aperodic in AP. At higher temporal windows, AP entropy tends more toward chaotic series, than that of ML. There are stronger non-linear components in AP than that in ML regardless of the speed conditions.
