Special issue "Control of Gait and Posture: a tribute to Professor Lilian T. B. Gobbi"
The goal of this special issue is to discuss the control of gait and posture to make a tribute to Professor Lilian Gobbi. Considering that much of her life was spent in understanding the control of gait and posture, the present special issue will discuss cutting-edge studies that address aspects related to gait and posture, such as mobility and balance performance, kinematics, kinetics, muscle activity, and brain activity analysis, in usual and adaptative conditions. To enhance our understanding of the control of gait and posture, we encourage studies related to neurological diseases (e.g., Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, etc), aging effects, skeletal-muscle disorders, fatigue, intervention and rehabilitation focusing on gait and posture, and also theoretical hypotheses for the control of gait and posture, such as brain control and perception aspects.
