Perturbation of leg protraction causes context-dependent modulation of inter-leg coordination, but not of avoidance reflexes

Ebeling, Wiebke; Durr, Volker

Description

All animals capable of legged locomotion execute fast, adaptive compensatory movements in response to perturbation of a step cycle. In terms of motor control, such adaptive behaviour typically involves changes in the kinematics of the perturbed limb as well as changes in coordination between legs. Moreover, the unpredictable variety of real life situations implies that compensatory responses should be sensitive to the behavioural context of the animal. We have investigated the extent to which...[Show more]
