Modulation of Membrane Potential in Mesothoracic Moto- and Interneurons During Stick Insect Front Leg Walking Authors:

During walking, maintenance and coordination of activity in leg motoneurons requires intersegmental signal transfer. In a semi-intact preparation of the stick insect we studied membrane potential modulations in mesothoracic (middle leg) motoneurons and local premotor non-spiking interneurons that were induced by stepping of a front leg on a treadmill. The… CONTINUE READING
