1. Sensory aspects of the control of orientation to surface ripples have been examined in the waterstrider. The angular component of the motor response of tethered animals is highly correlated with the angular deviation of a target from the longitudinal body axis (Fig. 1). 2. Amputation of three unilateral legs just proximal to the tibio-tarsal joint blocks normal orientation. Most turns by these preparations are directed toward the intact side irrespective of target position (Fig. 3… CONTINUE READING
