The angle of the coxa-trochanter (C-T) joint in the stick insect Carausius morosus is controlled by a negative feedback mechanism. It is shown that the trochanteral hair plate alone functions as the feedback transducer and that the rhomboid hair plate is not involved in the feedback loop. The properties of the C-T control system were investigated by means of force measurements. The results cannot be adequately described in all details by either a fractional differentiator model, a model which… CONTINUE READING
