Activity in antagonistic leg muscles was reciprocally modulated, with a predominant gastrocnemius activation during deceleration of forward movement and tibialis anterior activation during deceleration of backward movement of the treadmill. In these phases, it was necessary to compensate for sway induced by… CONTINUE READING
