Abstract: The main challenge when studying EEG signals related to human walk control comes from the fact that signals of many different origins are mixed up. Indeed, descending commands from the brain are generated, while ascending sensorimotor information coming from the feet is sent to the brain. In addition to the inherent complexity of the human control mechanism, experimental investigation of the cerebral activity elicited during walk is highly challenging: electrode movements are produced by movements of the head, but also by the shocks undergone by the whole body at each step, which – albeit significantly attenuated – are transmitted to the head and degrade the quality of EEG signals. Recently, different EEG studies of human locomotion have been published. These are based on different hypotheses and/or produce results that are contradictory. After reviewing and describing the discrepancies between the different approaches, we propose new experimental protocols which should help to solve important issues. (More)
