... moving animals, one may need to resort to muscle models, inferring the limb impedance through computer simulations (e.g. Held et al., 2012 ). Future studies should combine biological experiments with modeling studies to measure the neural control of muscle rest lengths, stiffness, and velocity...

Our findings provide further evidence that the central nervous system flexibly uses a consistent set of neural control elements with a flexible temporal recruitment and modifications of the relative muscle weightings within each element to provide stable locomotion under varying...

... are neurally controlled, but nothing is known about the iridescence circuit, or the environmental cues, that elicit iridescence expression. To tackle this knowledge gap, we performed denervation, electrical stimulation and behavioral experiments using the long-fin squid, Doryteuthis pealeii . We show...

... are controlled to achieve stationary sensory goals. But in the interest of identifying neural control algorithms, it is sometimes useful to isolate the task-level states from the ‘artifacts’ that can be introduced by such cyclic motor dynamics. Locomotor dynamics often obscure the task-level states...
