Our ability to move in the world, and even to stand upright depend on complex and flexible multiscale sensory and motor interactions. Our experimental and computational studies of balance in one-, two-, and four-legged stance have revealed many ways that the brain and body interact and influence each other in the control of movement. I will illustrate multi-scale effects of muscle and neural properties on proprioception and sensorimotor control of balance. I will further demonstrate how individual differences in how we move arises from neuromechanical interactions shaped by evolutionary, developmental, and learning processes.
