Editorial: Control of Gait and Posture: a tribute to Professor Lilian T. B. Gobbi
AbstractThis special issue aims to pay tribute to Professor Lilian Gobbi by discussing the control of gait and posture. Given her extensive dedication to comprehending gait and posture control throughout her life, this issue delves into cutting-edge studies that explore various aspects related to these topics. These aspects encompass mobility and balance performance, kinematics, kinetics, muscle activity, and brain activity analysis under both normal and adaptive conditions. Within this special issue, an array of themes associated with gait and posture control is presented through ten dedicated articles, all of which are intended to honor Professor Lilian Gobbi. Among these, five studies investigated locomotion, while three studies closely examined postural control. Furthermore, two studies took on a dual-tasking, addressing both gait and posture contexts. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the reviewers and members of the editorial board for their invaluable expertise and unwavering dedication in ensuring the utmost quality of research presented in this editorial. The editors of this Special Issue are not only pleased with the contributions made to honor Professor Lilian Gobbi, but also view these contributions as a celebration of scientific collaboration and the significant strides we have taken in advancing our understanding of gait and posture.
