Interlimb transfer of motor adaptations between the legs during treadmill walking
TLDR
This paper presents a monograph on the construction and application of light-emitting diodes to the study of magnetism and its applications in the sport of tennis.
The Role of Sensory Signals for Interjoint Coordination in Stick Insect Legs (Carausius morosus and Cuniculina impigra)
TLDR
Substantial differences in the ways that usage guides treated the usage problems and in the attitudes bloggers and journalists espoused towards the usage issues are revealed.
Pattern generation for walking and searching movements of a stick insect leg. I. Coordination of motor activity.
TLDR
Results show that for the single middle leg, a basic walking motor pattern is generated sharing similarities with the tripod gait and that the influence of the motor pattern generated in the distal leg joints is sufficient for driving the activity of coxal motoneurons so an overall motor pattern resembling forward walking is generated.
Central pattern generating networks in insect locomotion
TLDR
By reviewing the state‐of‐the‐art knowledge concerning the role of CPGs in insect locomotion, this work endeavors to create a common ground, upon which future research in the field of motor control in insects can build.
Intersegmental coordination of walking movements in stick insects.
TLDR
A third preparation provided evidence that signals from the front leg's femoral chordotonal organ (fCO) influenced activity of ipsilateral MNs in the adjacent mesothoracic ganglion, which could be partially responsible for the observed MN activity modulation during front leg walking.
Pattern generation for walking and searching movements of a stick insect leg. II. Control of motoneuronal activity.
In the stick insect, Cuniculina impigra, intracellular recordings from mesothoracic motoneurons that control flexion and extension of the tibia and depression and levation of the trochantero-femur
Leg Coordination during Walking in Insects
TLDR
Common principles in inter-leg coordination where found, like similarities between different organisms and segment specific or state dependent modifications in the walking system can be interpreted as evidence for a highly adaptive and modular design of the underlying neuronal structures.

Neural Basis of Elementary Behavior in Stick Insects
TLDR
A simulation of the Femur-Tibia Control Loop, Catalepsy and Rocking in Extatosoma tiaratum and Cuniculina impigra and the Responses of FETi and SETi to Stimulating the Femoral Chordotonal Organ.
Nonspiking local interneurons in insect leg motor control. II. Role of nonspiking local interneurons in the control of leg swing during walking.
TLDR
This work examined interneurons that provided excitatory or inhibitory synaptic drive to a subset of motoneurons active during the swing movement of walking, indicating that swing movement in both situations may be generated by similar neuronal networks (although the mechanism of movement reversal remains unclear).
Nonspiking local interneurons in insect leg motor control. I. Common layout and species-specific response properties of femur-tibia joint control pathways in stick insect and locust.
TLDR
Evidence is obtained that the neuronal networks that control the femur-tibia joints in the two species consist of morphologically and physiologically similar--and thus probably homologous--interneurons, which drive the same pools of leg motoneurons in both species.
Central Pattern Generation: A Concept Under Scrutiny
TLDR
It is now clear that CPGs as defined in deafferented preparations do not form the basis for establishing the timing of activity in all rhythmic motor systems, and central pattern generation cannot be regarded as universal functional principle for rhythmic Motor systems.
MOVEMENTS AND MOTOR PATTERNS OF THE BUCCAL MASS OF PLEUROBRANCHAEA DURING FEEDING, REGURGITATION AND REJECTION
TLDR
A general conclusion is that buccal rhythms in gastropods cannot automatically be assumed to underlie feeding, and this is particularly true for dissected preparations which do not execute a clear behavioural response.
Behaviour and Motor Output for an Insect Walking on a Slippery Surface: II. Backward Walking
TLDR
Fast motor output appeared to be superimposed on the forward walking motor pattern to produce the movements required for backward walking in this insect.
THE TREADING-ON-TARSUS REFLEX IN STICK INSECTS: PHASE-DEPENDENCE AND MODIFICATIONS OF THE MOTOR OUTPUT DURING WALKING
TLDR
In stick insects walking forwards or backwards, a treading-on-tarsus (TOT) reflex of the middle leg could be elicited by mechanical stimulation of the ipsilateral front leg tarsus by a step generator of two hierarchical levels.
THE PHYSIOLOGY OF SENSORY CELLS IN THE VENTRAL SCOLOPARIUM OF THE STICK INSECT FEMORAL CHORDOTONAL ORGAN
TLDR
The physiology of sensory neurones that are located in the ventral scoloparium of the fCO are investigated to gain an insight into the control of FT joint movement during different behavioural tasks, for example during resistance reflexes in the standing animal.
Central Programming and Reflex Control of Walking in the Cockroach
TLDR
Reciprocal activity in levator and depressor motoneurones can be evoked, or occurs spontaneously, in the partially de-afferented preparations, thus indicating the existence of a central locomotory rhythm generator.
