Abstract. Recently hatched domestic chicks control their upright bipedal posture, at least in part, with respect to the flow of visual information at the retina, as do human infants when they first acquire control of the head, of sitting, and of standing. Some implications of the similarity of the proprioceptive function of vision in chicks and in humans for the origins and development of postural control are discussed.
