Neuronal networks in the spinal cord are capable of producing rhythmic movements, such as walking and swimming, when the spinal cord itself is isolated from the brain and sensory inputs. These spinal networks, also called central pattern generators or CPGs, serve as relatively simple model systems for our understanding of brain functions. In this paper we concentrate on spinal CPGs in limbed vertebrates and in particular address the question: Where in the spinal cord, in the longitudinal and… CONTINUE READING
