Stability of Gait
Walking on two legs is inherently unstable. Still, we humans perform remarkable well at it, mostly without falling. To gain more understanding of the role of the central nervous system in controlling gait stability we assess brain activity using electro-encephalography during stabilized and normal walking.

Building on research on kinematic measures and neural correlates of gait stability, we hypothesize that several distinct phases of the gait cycle require active control.
