1. The spontaneous release of walking in the locust is preceded by a preparatory phase consisting of "intentional" movements. This phase is absent when walking is evoked by sensory stimuli. 2. Some brain and suboesophageal (SOG) descending interneurons (DINs) become active before the preparatory phase. 3. During and after the preparatory phase new DINs are recruited predominantly from the SOG. 4. A large variety of activity patterns was recorded during spontaneous starts. These activity… CONTINUE READING
