The COP has to move ahead of the COM to decelerate it and bring it to a stable position. 2 Center of mass (COM) and center of pressure (COP) profiles during gait initiation. Production and coordination of rhythmic muscle activation patterns COP COM Locomotion in all animals involves repetition of cyclical activity of appendages (legs, fins or wings) to transport the body. Without this feature locomotion would not be possible. How this rhythmic activation of the muscles in the appendages is generated has been the subject of much research for over 100 years.

Thus, these maps are not like the cartographic maps used by travelers for navigation in a large-scale environment, but contain relevant information that allows us to select novel paths and guide our locomotion to goals not visible from the start. In addition, the maps have to be associated with specific temporal events (episodic memory). 105 NEURAL SUBSTRATES INVOLVED Clinical studies of patients with lesions and electrophysiological and lesion studies in animals have identified several neural substrates in the cerebral hemispheres that store these cognitive spatial maps.
