An examination of constraints affecting the intralimb coordination of hemiparetic gait
Abstract A dynamical systems approach to the study of locomotor intralimb coordination in those with hemiparesis led to an examination of the utility of the shank–thigh relative phase (RP) as aExpand

Development of multisensory reweighting for posture control in children
Reweighting to multisensory inputs adaptively contributes to stable and flexible upright stance control. However, few studies have examined how early a child develops multisensory reweightingExpand
