The contribution of afferent feedback to the regulation of locomotion in humans is not well understood. Animal experiments have suggested that loading of the leg during the stance phase may enhance the magnitude of extensor burst activity and delay the onset of swing phase. The aim of the present study was to determine whether transient loading of the leg… CONTINUE READING
