According to an EEG signals' mu and [beta] rhythms, three different walking speed levels were identified, with an average classification accuracy of 72.7% [22], this study also provides insight on the cortical involvement in human gait control and represents a step towards a brain-machine interface for poststroke gait rehabilitation [22].
Secondly, the jazz's tempo is almost fixed and good for gait control. Lastly, it can make subjects feel relaxed and walk with ease.
The effects of gait control signals have been presented in the literature [10,11,25].
Typically, PPV follows a period of particular emotional stress or vestibular or non-vestibular illness, little is known about changes in gait control of these patients.

Other methods, more complex, combine in different manners the above-mentioned methods, adding also biological investigations (electromyography, electroencephalography) needed for evaluating the human gait control mechanisms.
Work on the mechanisms that coordinate walking in the stick insect provided a second example of a distributed approach to gait control. In 1992, we set out to explore the application of these mechanisms to the control of our first robot [8].
On the basis of Matsuoka's CPG oscillator, Kimura adopted two neurons: flexor and extensor muscles to simulate the movement of the nervous system of animals and to achieve quadruped robot gait control [16].
2012, Bronstein, 1995, Dieterich, 2001; Holmberg, 2009; Krafczyk, 1999; Querner, 2002; Tjernstorm, 2009), little is known about changes in gait control of these patients.
Deficits in these aspects of gait control are evident when looking at patients who have disease of the basal ganglia such as those with Parkinsons Disease (PD), who have difficulty generating appropriate step amplitude and maintaining the sequence of walking.
