...B. Hedwig; J. F. A. Poulet SUMMARY Phonotactic steering behaviour of the cricket G. bimaculatus was analysed with a new highly sensitive trackball system providing a spatial and temporal resolution of 127 μm and 0.3 ms, respectively. Orientation to artificial calling songs started at 45 dB SPL...

...Claire N. Balint; Michael H. Dickinson SUMMARY Flies are among the most agile of flying insects, a capacity that ultimately results from their nervous system's control over steering muscles and aerodynamic forces during flight. In order to investigate the relationships among neuromuscular control...

...PHILIP L. NEWLAND; DANIEL CATTAERT; DOUGLAS M. NEIL; FRANCOIS CLARAC Steering movements of the abdomen and the terminal appendages, the uropods, of the rock lobster Jasus lalandii have been examined during slow postural responses and during tail-flips using a combination of movement and force...

... and upstroke supination by more than 25°. A more physiological stimulus regime resulted in angular changes of about 7°, which is near the range observed during steering manoeuvres. This confirms that the pleuroalar muscle plays an important role in adjusting the wing's aerodynamic angle of attack, as proposed...

... their motor effects. All components of steering (modification of wing stroke, ruddering with the hind legs, ruddering with the abdomen and head rotation) can be initiated by single DNs. Steering in flight involves the concerted action of at least 10 pairs of DNs synapsing with motor neurones and premotor...

... rolling in locusts that are not flying. Excitation increases on the side that is rolled down. The response to angular movement about the roll axis is primarily phasic and is dependent on visual cues. It is concluded that these muscles take part in steering behaviour during corrective reactions. Activation...
