Data from: Evidence for a time-invariant phase variable in human ankle control

Robert D. Gregg, Elliott J. Rouse, Levi J. Hargrove & Jonathon W. Sensinger
Human locomotion is a rhythmic task in which patterns of muscle activity are modulated by state-dependent feedback to accommodate perturbations. Two popular theories have been proposed for the underlying embodiment of phase in the human pattern generator: a time-dependent internal representation or a time-invariant feedback representation (i.e., reflex mechanisms). In either case the neuromuscular system must update or represent the phase of locomotor patterns based on the system state, which can include measurements of hundreds...
