Sensory feedback can modulate the intensity and timing of the central rhythms underlying locomotion and adjust them to compensate for natural or experimental perturbations1–4. However, because of the complexity of the neural systems involved, the role of specific sense organs and the function of individual afferent neurones are poorly understood. The thoracic-coxal muscle receptor organ (TCMRO), a proprioceptor of the crayfish walking leg, has only two afferent neurones, the non-spiking S and T… CONTINUE READING
