A critical feature of the motor pattern generated by the lamprey spinal cord is an intersegmental delay that is constant down the cord and scales with cycle duration. This has been modelled as the output of a chain of coupled oscillators, within a general mathematical framework developed by Kopell and Ermentrout (1986, 1988). The analysis predicts that for asymmetric coupling of equally-activated oscillators, the intersegmental phase lag will be uniform along the chain except in a boundary… CONTINUE READING
