Insect legs possess chordotonal organs which monitor leg angle, and the direction, velocity and acceleration of leg movements. The locust metathoracic femoral chordotonal organ (mtFCO) has previously been studied morphologically and physiologically, but no detailed analysis of the responses of individual neurones, and their location in the organ has so far been produced. By recording from, and staining mtFCO neurones I have been able to compile for the first time such a map. The distribution of… CONTINUE READING
