Neural Control of Walking Balance: IF Falling THEN React ELSE Continue

Misiaszek, John E.

Abstract

Many different corrective reactions can be used to regain balance during walking. However, the nervous system does not hesitate to decide which reaction will be used. A rule-based finite state control system that preselects appropriate reactions is a practical way to simplify this task. The proposed model suggests that much of this is achieved by groups of spinal interneurons.
