Using the surrogate data technique we evaluated whether, during running, the synchronization between cardiac and locomotor rhythms resulted from entrainment or by chance. An electrocardiogram and an electromyogram from the right vastus lateralis muscle were monitored from ten healthy young men running at a paced rhythm of 150 steps a minute. The relationship between cardiac and locomotor rhythms was determined by examination of the occurrence of the heart beat with respect to the locomotor… CONTINUE READING
