A key element of walking is the coordinated interplay of multiple limbs to achieve a stable locomotor pattern that is adapted to the environment. We investigated intersegmental coordination of walking in the stick insect, Carausius morosus by examining the influence a single stepping leg has on the motoneural activity of the other hemiganglia, and whether this influence changes with the walking direction. We used a reduced single leg walking preparation with only one intact front, middle, or… CONTINUE READING
