In a form of top-down analysis, the femur-tibia control system of stick insects is investigated. Open-loop experiments show that it is mainly velocity-sensitive with an extremely low velocity-threshold, that it possesses a very high gain and that it has only a very small phase reserve and thus works close to instability. The closed-loop system generates catalepsy. The system consists of a single sense organ with approximately 80 sense cells with known characteristics, a small number of… CONTINUE READING
