Abstract: Two basic aspects of the neuronal control of bipedal stance and gait have been discussed, namely the interlimb coordination and the antigravity function of leg extensors. During stance and gait both legs act in a cooperative manner as each limb affects the strength of muscle activation and the time-space behaviour of the other. There are indications that interlimb coordination is mediated by spinal interneuronal circuits, which are themselves under supraspinal (e.g. cerebral and cerebellar) control. Propriocep…
