Stick insects (Cuniculina impigra) possessing only a single front leg perform untargeted stereotypical cyclic searching movements with that leg when it loses contact with the ground. When encountering an object, the animals grasp it. We hypothesized that removal of the object immediately after contact with the leg's tibia would result in a change in(More)
Searching movements, beside locomotion, are, perhaps, the most important motor activities of the front legs in stick insects. In a recent study [1], the kinematics of these movements were thoroughly investigated. In these experiments the animal was restricted such that its front leg could freely move in the plane perpendicular to the longitudinal axis of(More)
