For a large number of vertebrate species it is now indisputable that spinal networks have the capability of generating the basic locomotor rhythm. The aim of this review is to summarize the evidence for spinal pattern generators in cats and primates, including man and its interaction with sensory signals from the limbs. For all species the sensory feed-back from the moving limb is very important to achieve effective locomotor behaviour by adapting to the environment and compensating for… CONTINUE READING
