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… CONTINUE READING
