In this paper, we extend our previous model circuit for steering in C. elegans to control a more realistic biomechanical model of forward locomotion. We show that the identified steering circuit is sufficient to steer the full body during forward locomotion while only innervating a few of the anterior most neck muscles. Analysis of the sensorimotor transformation and phasic stimulation experiments provides evidence that the principles of operation for steering discussed in the model are… Expand
