A hypothetical neuromusculoskeletal model is developed to simulate human normal walking and its modulated behaviors. A small set of neural periodic patterns drive spinal muscle synergies which in turn lead to specific pattern of muscle activation and supraspinal feedback systems maintain postural balance during walking. Then, the model demonstrates modulated behaviors by superimposing voluntary perturbations on the underlying walking pattern. Motions of kicking a ball and obstacle avoidance… CONTINUE READING
