Intra-Subject Consistency during Locomotion: Similarity in Shared and Subject-Specific Muscle Synergies

Human locomotion is a complex motor task. Previous research hypothesized that muscle synergies reflect the modular control of muscle groups operated by the Central Nervous System (CNS). Despite the high stride-to-stride variability characterizing human gait, most studies analyze only a few strides....
