Mechanosensory information from exteroceptive hairs on the legs of a locust is first processed in a segmental ganglion by a midline population of spiking local interneurons for use in adjustments of posture and locomotion. Each interneuron receives excitatory inputs from a characteristic array of these receptors so that the surface of a leg is mapped onto the whole population of interneurons as a series of overlapping receptive fields. The properties of this first synaptic connection, and the… CONTINUE READING
