Coordination of legs during straight walking and turning in Drosophila melanogaster

Abstract

Leg coordination of Drosophila melanogaster was studied using frame-by-frame film analysis. 1. For fastest walking alternating tripod coordination is observed which slightly deviates towards tetrapody as a function of step period. During acceleration or deceleration legs may transiently recover in diagonal pairs. 2. Mean step length increases with step… (More)
