Abstract

The central nervous system controls body functions and initiates actions through an integrated system of multiple feedback loops. System identification can be a valuable tool to assess the system dynamics. The challenge is to assess the functioning of an intact feedback system in vivo, where cause and effect are intermingled. In this paper we show the errors which can occur when estimating system dynamics using standard (open-loop) system identification algorithms in the presence of feedback loops. Furthermore, we show how these issues can be addressed by using closed-loop algorithms. A closed-loop system identification approach is essential to assess the separate feedback loops of the central nervous system in an intact functional system.
