Our brains are continuously and unconsciously integrating proprioceptive information together with the visual and vestibular systems through synapses in neurons, interneurons and motoneurons connections to the brain motor cortex and cerebellum to inform about our overall sense of body position, movements and acceleration in balance. Those natural complex integrations and calculations to have a posture are improvable through knowledge and physical exercises or activities.
