The central pattern generator (CPG) for locomotion can be thought of as a chain of segmental oscillators coupled together that produces the basic locomotor pattern. The isolated spinal cord of the lamprey is an excellent preparation in which to formulate general principles for the operation of the CPG. The stability of the preparation and the ease with which surgical lesions can be made in the cord have allowed the study of the coordinating system with a convenience unobtainable in more complex… CONTINUE READING
