The art of wandering in vertebrates: New mapping of neurons involved in locomotion
Walking is a complex mechanism involving both automatic processes and conscious control. Its dysfunction can have multiple, sometimes extremely subtle causes, within the motor cortex, brain stem, spinal cord, or muscles. At Paris Brain Institute, Martin Carbo-Tano, Mathilde Lapoix, and their colleagues in the «Spinal Sensory Signaling» team, led by Claire Wyart (Inserm), have focused on a specific component of locomotion: forward propulsion.
