Many types of sense organs have been demonstrated to show repetitive discharges during walking that could provide informational cues about leg movements and other parameters of locomotion. We have recorded activities of receptors of the distal (tarsal) segments of the cockroach hindleg in restrained and freely moving animals while they were videotaped. These recordings show peaks of activities at the onset and termination of the stance phase. We have morphologically and physiologically… CONTINUE READING
