1. Normal dogs were trained to adopt a laterally symmetric stance on a horizontal platform. Sinusoidal oscillation of the platform in the cephalocaudal direction caused the dogs to adopt a strategy of response which would keep them from falling down during the period of imposed motion or perturbation.2. A Fourier analysis of the response variables provided a quantitative measure of the distortion in the induced movement at the various hind leg joints and in the motion of the body.
