1. Individual proprioceptive campaniform sensilla of tibial Group 6 in the cockroachBlaberus discoidalis were stimulated by combinations of proprioceptive and punctate stimuli. 2. Punctate stimulation during a proprioceptive discharge increased the response rather than decreasing it, indicating that proprioceptive stimuli indent, rather than bulge, the cap of the sensillum. 3. The magnitude of the indentation associated with a strong proprioceptive discharge was estimated from compliance and… CONTINUE READING
