Fictive Crawling in Manduca Sexta: the role of central pattern generators in the neural control of soft-bodied locomotion.

Slate, Daniel J.
2011

Central pattern generators are well characterized in a variety of species and are thought to control vital biological functions. These pattern generators function effectively with little to no sensory feedback. Fictive behaviors provide a method of examining the existence of central pattern generators. In Manduca sexta, the larvae's lack of a rigid skeleton poses challenges to the control of the c... read more
