O.K., first, was this also serious?  If so, I must have missed 
something.  Was any evidence presented that there was any role for 
brain, brainstem, or even upper level spinal cord in the production or 
modulation of the movements described?  Is there any evidence that 
undamaged nervous connections exist from the legs to the brain?

It is well known that there is circuitry in the spinal cord for the 
production of complex limb movements.  What indication is there that 
the brain just doesn't hear what the legs are saying?
