- postural aftereffect
- A term used to denote the illusory position of the body, in part or in whole, due to a previously held position or movement. For example, when a limb is held immobile for a while, and then moved into a new position, the perceived position of that limb may be inaccurate. Postural aftereffects are classified as * aftereffects, * motor illusions, or * proprioceptive hallucinations.ReferencesJones, L.A. (1988). Motor illusions: What do they reveal about proprioception? Psychological Bulletin, 103, 72-86.
