Within the fifth abdominal segment of intact locusts a group of dorso-ventral expiratory muscles and one inspiratory antagonist display alternating ventilatory patterns of three basic types. Accelerated movements in the dorso-ventral plane are supported by isometric activity of the intersegmental muscles which prevent extensions in the longitudinal axis. The intersegmental coupling of ventilatory motor patterns is strict during strong ventilation and loose and more metachronal with weaker… CONTINUE READING
