... joint. In invertebrates, this sensory feedback is provided by external (e.g. hair fields, hair rows) and/or internal sense organs (e.g. chordotonal organs). The femoral chordotonal organ (fCO) serves as the main proprioceptor in the control loop governing the femur–tibia (FT) joint of the insect leg...

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...
