... 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...

...P. M.J. SHELTON; R. O. STEPHEN; J. J.A. SCOTT; A. R. TINDALL The mechanical connections of the metathoracic femoral chordotonal organ (mtFCO) with its insertion at the femoro-tibial joint are described. The apodeme complex is shown to consist of a distal cuticular rod that is replaced proximally...

... 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 are described...

...ULRICH BÄSSLER A rampwise stretch of the femoral chordotonal organ is known often to elicit a response in the active decerebrate stick insect that is termed an ‘active reaction’, and which can be considered to represent part of the step cycle. During the first part of the response, the flexor motor...

...PETER BRAUNIG 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. It is sensitive...
