    Dear Biomch-L members,

    A few weeks ago I submitted the next request :
    Who can inform me about the current insights in the control of the
    spatio-temporal gait variables (stride/step frequency; step/stride length)
    in animals (and humans) during voluntary velocity increase ?

    How do different gaits (walk, trot, gallop) relate to the CPG-concept ?
    Is, for instance, a gallop the expression of a CPG, different from that of
    a walking or trotting gait ?

    >From a review paper by Zatsiorsky, Werner and Kaimin (1994; Journal of
    Sports Medicine and Physiscal Fitness) I learned about an hypothesis
    which stated that just the level of the "push-off forces" was controled
    (Bonnard and Pailhous, 1991). Is this hypothesis still in vogue ?

    Do there exist recent reviews dealing with these topics, which are
    accessible for non-neurologists ?

    What follows are the replies :
