 I present a comprehensive biologically oriented computational model to account for the escape response of the cockroach on the ground. This model is an expansion of previous work that accounted only for discriminating left from right wind directions [Ezrachi et al. (1999) Biol Cybern 81: 89–99]. The model is composed of computational elements describing the biological processes taking place in the various neurons and includes input which emulates empirical data. With this model it is possible… CONTINUE READING
