Transient disturbances were applied to the lower limbs of infants (3-10 mo of age) while they were supported to stepped on a treadmill. The aim was to determine how stepping infants respond to novel disturbances that would disrupt equilibrium during independent walking. Their responses were also compared with those from lower mammals and adult humans. In the first series of experiments, the motion of the limb in the swing phase was transiently stopped by the experimenter grasping the limb for a… CONTINUE READING
