Lena H. Ting, Stacie A. Chvatal, Seyed A. Safavynia and J. Lucas McKay Review and perspective: neuromechanical considerations for predicting muscle activation patterns for movement International Journal for Numerical Methods in Biomedical Engineering 28
Muscle coordination may be impossible to predict accurately based on biomechanical considerations alone because of redundancy in the musculoskeletal system. Here, we present a review of recent work demonstrating that muscle activation patterns may reflect a hierarchical and low-dimensional structure of neuromotor outputs that reflect control of task-level goals. Understanding the goals and organization of the neural control of movement may provide useful reduced dimension parameter sets to address the degrees-of-freedom problem in musculoskeletal movement control.
