... thixotropy Proprioception Somatosensation Sensorimotor control Muscle spindles are sensory organs within skeletal muscles that are crucial for sensing body segment position and motion ( Prochazka and Ellaway, 2012 ), with mechanosensory signaling characteristics that generalize across species...

... time in wild-type flies, while recovery is significantly impaired in proprioceptive mutants. To identify the biomechanical basis of this locomotor impairment and recovery, we then examine individual leg motion (gait) at a fine scale. A minimal mathematical model that links neurodynamics to body...

In addition, males showed higher K than females under all the orientation conditions tested, whereas the term τ, which is the time constant of the response...

... vision, to provide compensatory information on limb posture and movement (e.g. Rothwell et al., 1982 ; Sanes et al., 1985 ). The role of proprioception in limb rhythms has been debated since early work by Brown and Sherrington (e.g. Brown and Sherrington, 1912 ; Sherrington, 1913 ) showed...

... environment and movement experience prior to hatching are instrumental in establishing precocious motor skills. However, physiological evidence of proprioceptor development in the chick has yet to be established; thus, one goal of this study was to determine when in embryogenesis proprioception circuits can...

... failed to induce any behavioural gregarization. Patterned electrical stimulation of metathoracic nerve 5, which innervates the hind leg, however, produced full gregarization in restrained locusts. Our data show for the first time that the gregarizing signal combines both exteroceptive and proprioceptive...
