In legged locomotion, where terrain heterogeneity may require stride-by-stride changes in leg placement, evidence suggests that sensory information is essential for the timing of leg movement. In a previous study we showed that in cockroaches, renowned for rapid and stable running, a coordinated pattern can be elicited from the motor centres driving the different legs in the absence of sensory feedback. In the present paper, we assess the role of movement-related sensory inputs in modifying this central pattern. We studied the effect of spontaneous steps as well as imposed transient and periodic movements of a single intact leg, and demonstrate that, depending on the movement properties, the resulting proprioceptive feedback can significantly modify phase relationships among segmental oscillators of other legs. Our analysis suggests that feedback from front legs is weaker but more phasically precise than from hind legs, selectively transferring movement-related information in a manner that strengthens the inherent rhythmic pattern and modulates local perturbations.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>David, Izhak</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/46734"/> <dc:contributor>David, Izhak</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2012-06-01</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Fuchs, Einat</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Fuchs, Einat</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Ayali, Amir</dc:contributor> <dcterms:title>Proprioceptive feedback reinforces centrally generated stepping patterns in the cockroach</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Holmes, Philip</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
