Legged locomotion requires that information local to one leg, and inter-segmental signals coming from the other legs are processed appropriately to establish a coordinated walking pattern. However, very little is known about the relative importance of local and inter-segmental signals when they converge upon the central pattern generators (CPGs) of different leg joints. We investigated this question on the CPG of the middle leg coxa–trochanter (CTr)-joint of the stick insect which is… CONTINUE READING
