... aliasing is induced by ego motion. We hypothesized that obstructing the control of gaze fixation also disrupts detection and tracking of objects. Using the illusory motion stimulus, we show that magnetically tethered Drosophila track objects robustly in flight even when gaze is not fixated as flies...

...Suzanne M. Cox; Gary B. Gillis ABSTRACT Controlled landing requires preparation. Mammals and bipedal birds vary how they prepare for landing by predicting the timing and magnitude of impact from the integration of visual and non-visual information. Here, we explore how the cane toad Rhinella marina...

The pursuit strategy an animal uses to control its path relative to the target's motion and to make adjustments as the target changes speed or direction has implications for the efficiency and success of the pursuer ( Pal, 2015 ). Studies on insects, birds and mammals have...

...Kirsty A. McDonald; Daniel Devaprakash; Jonas Rubenson ABSTRACT Center of mass (COM) control has been proposed to serve economy- and stability-related locomotor task objectives. However, given the lack of evidence supporting direct sensing and/or regulation of the COM, it remains unclear whether...

Instead, deceleration is exclusively controlled by the forelimbs and their underlying musculature ( Azizi and Abbott, 2013 ; Gillis et al...

Here we show how hawkmoths produce and control one such manoeuvre, an avoidance response consisting of rapid pitching up, rearward flight, pitching down...

If SMR does indeed represent a local minimum, then short-term regulatory control mechanisms should not operate to sustain it. This is a hidden...
