Recent advances in noninvasive electrophysiological and brain imaging techniques have made investigation of the central control of human walking possible. We are thus now able to ask in what way the motor control circuitries in the human brain and spinal cord have been modified in order to control bipedal walking. This information is of importance not only for our understanding of basic control strategies and paradigms but also for future attempts at rehabilitating the gait ability of patients… CONTINUE READING
