  • SummaryThe locust metathoracic femoral chordotonal organ is the largest sense organ in the hind leg. It has been intensively studied, and used as a model input system in studies of central integration of proprioceptive information. We have used electron microscopy, as well as whole nerve and single axon cobalt backfilling to show that previous descriptions of the metathoracic femoral chordotonal organ have failed to recognize a substantial group of small neurons distal to the known cell bodies… CONTINUE READING
