Abstract
Walking and running are two highly complex motor skills that incorporate input from multiple levels of the nervous system, involve muscular contributions throughout the body, and require the coordination of many skeletal degrees of freedom. Nevertheless, under nonpathologic conditions, an individual can produce a highly stable and repeatable gait pattern without conscious control of the process.
