Sensory activity may contribute to the control of human walking in two different ways. It may contribute to the pre-programmed drive to the motoneurones and to the reactions to unexpected external perturbations. Some recent findings in relation to these two different roles of sensory activity will be reviewed. When unloading the ankle plantarflexors in the stance phase of walking a drop in the soleus EMG activity is seen at a latency of around 60 ms. This drop is likely caused by the removal of… CONTINUE READING
