Anticipatory locomotor adjustments (ALAs) are used during locomotion to perform tasks, such as obstacle clearance, although not much is known as to how these ALAs are implemented by the central nervous system (CNS). The current study applied the planar law of intersegmental coordination to both leading and trailing limbs in a paradigm in which obstacle height and depth were manipulated to propose how ALAs are controlled. Ten healthy young adults stepped over nine obstacle conditions. Full-body… CONTINUE READING
