Real pattern-generating networks often consist of more neurons than necessary for the production of a certain rhythm. We investigated the question of whether these neurons contribute to the robustness of a pattern-generating system of using the central pattern generator (CPG) for flight of the locust, generating the deafferented activity pattern of wing elevator and wing depressor motoneurons, as an example of a rhythm-generating system. The neuronal network was reconstructed, based on the… CONTINUE READING
