Step phase regulation.

Linear regression analyses between the relative step phase of each step (φi) and the phase change from each step to the following step () in a PD−FOG patient (left) and a FOG−P patient (right) during the ‘Go’ (upper) and ‘Back’ (lower) portions of the walking task. The analyses were performed separately for the left-to-right phase changes (blue) and for the right-to-left phase changes (red). The slope of the relation was smaller and the noise in the step phase regulation was larger in FOG−P than in PD−FOG.
