Abstract: The Human Nervous System, standing as the most complex system in known creature, has evolved to achieve many difficult tasks no other living body capable of. Human Nervous System, consisting of brain and spinal cord, can collect data from the environment and inner body, modulating this huge information with existing knowledge and creating appropriate motor responses mostly resulting in movement. The involvement of the high-level brain areas is needed for planning, initiation and execution of goal-directed voluntary movements. Energetics of terrestrial locomotion has been investigated extensively in many different aspects. Measurement methods of energy consumption need proper method, which directly depends on the purpose of the study, and the validity and reliability of the method. © 2020 Elsevier Inc.
