Gait is a learned, complex and almost automatic task with limited involvement of cognitive control in healthy individuals until the onset of old age (Holtzer et al., 2006). These automatic and rhythmic motor activity patterns are generated by spinal networks of motor neurons and interneurons, also called the "central pattern generators" (Dietz, 2003). The activity of these spinal networks is modulated and initiated by the basal ganglia and the brainstem nuclei (Pahapill & Lozano, 2000). The… CONTINUE READING
