As coordinating influences between contra-and ipsilateral legs were found directly to influence only the anterior extreme position of the legs, these results indicate that the mechanisms controlling curve walking may be different from those controlling normal leg coordination...

Ipsilateral coordination was found to involve a metachronal organization from front to back in all the walking sequences recorded, whereas contralateral coordination involved, in addition to the weak alternate...

This analysis revealed that the protraction of middle and rear...
