  3. 3. Computer Simulation of the Neural Control of Locomotion in the Cat and the Salamander

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Maskinkonstruktion

    Author : Nalin Harischandra; Örjan Ekeberg; Silvia Gruhn; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Locomotion; Computer simulation; Central pattern generator; System identification; Gait transition; Sensory feedback; Spiking neural networks;

    Abstract : Locomotion is an integral part of a whole range of animal behaviours. The basic rhythm for locomotion in vertebrates has been shown to arise from local networks residing in the spinal cord and these networks are known as central pattern generators (CPG). READ MORE

  4. 4. Computer Simulation of the Neural Control of Locomotion in the Cat

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Nalin Harischandra; Örjan Ekeberg; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Locomotion; Computer simulation; Central pattern generator; Muscle activation; Linear transfer functions; Sensory feedback; Neural control; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Locomotion is one of the most important behaviours and requires interaction between sensors at various levels of the nervous system and the limb muscles of an animal. The basic neural rhythm for locomotion in mammals has been shown to arise from local neural networks residing in the spinal cord and these networks are known as central pattern generators (CPGs).
