T. A. Stoffregen, L. J. Smart, B. G. Bardy. and R. J. Pagulayan (1999) combined a postural task (upright stance) with a suprapostural task (visual fixation) to show that sway variability was not driven by optic flow in a task-independent manner (autonomous control) but governed by the demands of the suprapostural task (facilitatory control). The present study used a novel combination of Stoffregen et al.'s task conditions but obtained clear evidence of autonomous control and no indication of facilitatory control. The theoretical adequacy of the stabilization-by-looking versus stabilization-of-looking contrast was examined, as was emerging evidence that posture control and common cognitive tasks place concurrent demands on the same capacity-limited resources. An adaptive resource-sharing view of postural-suprapostural multitasking was proposed as an alternative to both the autonomous- and facilitatory-control views.
