Automatic control of limb movement and posture

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Studies are reviewed that address the problem of the variables controlled by the central nervous system in the maintenance of body posture and limb movement against disturbing forces. The role of global variables of control, which take into account the dynamic state of the limb, is discussed. Neural substrates that are involved in the distributed control of kinematic and dynamic parameters are also considered.
