KEY POINTS The vestibular influence on human walking is phase-dependent and modulated across both limbs with changes in locomotor velocity and cadence. Using a split-belt treadmill, we show that vestibular influence on locomotor activity is modulated independently in each limb. The independent vestibular modulation of muscle activity from each limb occurs rapidly at the onset of split-belt walking, over a shorter time course relative to the characteristic split-belt error-correction mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
