...Philipp Bußhardt; Stanislav N. Gorb; Harald Wolf SUMMARY The activity of the middle part of the claw retractor muscle was examined in two species of stick insects ( Carausius morosus and Cuniculina impigra ). We performed electromyographic recordings while the animals were standing on a smooth...

... a behavioural transition do so at the same rate. The present study tests this assumption by analysing the sequence of kinematic events during turning of the stick insect Carausius morosus , and by measuring how the time courses of the changing parameters differ between legs. Turning was triggered reliably...

Generally coupling strength of the underlying mechanisms has been considered constant rather than context-dependent. The present study analyses stepping patterns of the stick insect Carausius morosus during...

... Carausius morosus A fundamental goal of ethological studies is to understand how complex behaviour is controlled. This goal can be achieved by breaking down the continuous flow of activity into single actions that can easily be identified and counted. For investigating the control of adaptive...

..., the kinematic sequence of leg searching movements of the stick insect Carausius morosus is analysed. Searching movements are shown to be stereotypic rhythmic movement sequences consisting of several loops. The typical loop structure allows the mean tarsus trajectory to be calculated using a feature-based...
