... provided by proprioceptors monitoring positions and movements of body parts and providing feedback to other components of locomotor networks. In insects, proprioceptive chordotonal organs span joints and encode parameters of relative movement between segments. Previous studies have used whole-organ...

... half of the posterior side of the outer membrane,while at higher frequencies (5–20 kHz) the entire membrane contributed to the vibration. The maximum deflection points of the two vibrational modes correspond to the locations of the associated chordotonal organs, suggesting that M. peleides has...

... was chosen to examine possible targets of the insecticide. The femoral chordotonal organ, which monitors joint position and movement, turned out to be the primary site of pymetrozine action, while interneurons,motoneurons and central motor control circuitry in general did not noticeably respond...

... a proprioceptor in the tailfan of the crayfish. Twenty identified interneurones responded during stimulation of the exopodite–endopodite chordotonal organ. Of these 20 interneurones, three were excited phaso-tonically, nine were excited phasically and eight were inhibited. All received convergent exteroceptive...

... in different regions of the pilifer revealed that the auditory afferent response originates in the basal pilifer region. The sensory organ was identified as a chordotonal organ that attaches to the base of the pilifer. This organ is the only sensory structure in the basal pilifer region and consists...

...Thomas Matheson ABSTRACT A multineuronal proprioceptor, the femoral chordotonal organ (feCO), monitors the position and movements of the tibia of an insect leg. Superfusing the locust metathoracic feCO with the neuromodulator octopamine, or the octopamine agonist synephrine, affects the position...

... and femoral chordotonal organ (the afferent source of the reflex). We conclude that position-dependency originates from a decrease in the number of phasic femoral chordotonal organ neurones sensitive to joint movement as larger FTAs are approached. Position-dependency is only roughly correlated...

..., the femoral chordotonal organ (ChO). The nonspiking interneurones in the femur-tibia control loop were characterized by their inputs from the ChO, their output properties onto the extensor motoneurones and their morphology. Eight different morphological and physiological types of nonspiking interneurones...

...Peter Bräunig ABSTRACT The so-called flexor strand of the femoral chordotonal organ of the locust jumping leg was found to be innervated by a single sensory neurone with its cell body in the metathoracic ganglion. The strand is therefore a new mechanoreceptor of the strand receptor class...
