... Periplaneta americana Blaberus discoidalis Gromphadorhina portentosa Righting oneself from upside down on the ground is a prevalent locomotor transition that many animals must perform to survive. Even on flat, level ground with high friction, legged locomotion can induce large pitch and roll...

... was to characterize sensors involved in the complex control of obstacle negotiation behaviors in the cockroach Blaberus discoidalis . Previous studies suggest that antennae are involved in obstacle detection and negotiation behaviors. During climbing attempts, cockroaches swing their front leg that then either...

...Daniel M. Dudek; Robert J. Full SUMMARY While the dynamics of running arthropods have been modeled as a spring-mass system, no such structures have been discovered that store and return energy during bouncing. The hindleg of the cockroach Blaberus discoidalis is a good candidate for a passive...

... apparatus to perturb running cockroaches ( Blaberus discoidalis ). The apparatus used chemical propellants to accelerate a small projectile, generating reaction force impulses of less than 10 ms duration. The apparatus was mounted onto the thorax of the insect, oriented to propel the projectile laterally...
