Abstract

The work described in this paper is concerned with the development of methods for on-line modelling and investigation of the neuromuscular system and thus to provide a means of making progress towards a consistent theory of postural control. Self-adaptive modelling techniques are used to track parameters of certain elements of the system, especially the muscle spindle receptors, during the performance of specific postural acts. This provides information about ways in which muscle spindle activity is adjusted by the central nervous system.
