    The manifold structure of limb coordination in walking Drosophila

    Brian D DeAngelis et al.
    During walking and turning, the fruit fly Drosophila uses variable limb coordination patterns, which exist on a low-dimensional, continuous manifold.

    Computational modeling of spinal circuits controlling limb coordination and gaits in quadrupeds

    Simon M Danner et al.
    Organization of commissural and long propriospinal neuronal pathways defines gait expression in quadrupeds.

    Absent phasing of respiratory and locomotor rhythms in running mice

    Coralie Hérent et al.
    When mice run, their breathing frequency increases but breaths are not temporally synchronized to strides at any speed or gait.

    A kinematic synergy for terrestrial locomotion shared by mammals and birds

    Giovanna Catavitello et al.
    General principles of the limb segment control for terrestrial locomotion have emerged in evolution and highlight the existence of the laws of biological motion that apply to various animal species.

    Long ascending propriospinal neurons provide flexible, context-specific control of interlimb coordination

    Amanda M Pocratsky et al.
    Conditional silencing of long ascending propriospinal neurons disrupts interlimb coordination of the fore and hindlimb pairs, but in a highly context-specific manner.

    A quantitative framework for whole-body coordination reveals specific deficits in freely walking ataxic mice

    Ana S Machado et al.
    Analysis of 3D paw kinematics and whole-body coordination in freely walking mice isolates specific features of gait ataxia and supports the hypothesis that the cerebellum provides an internal forward model for motor control.

    A primal role for the vestibular sense in the development of coordinated locomotion

    David E Ehrlich, David Schoppik
    Zebrafish use their sense of gravity and their cerebellum to coordinate the fin and body movements that, as they develop, allow them to better maintain balance as they climb.

    Spatiotemporally precise optogenetic activation of sensory neurons in freely walking Drosophila

    Brian D DeAngelis et al.
    A simple, computationally efficient method provides spatiotemporally precise optogenetic perturbations in freely walking Drosophila, revealing the asymmetries and region-specificity of behavioral programs evoked by activating mechanosensory and chemosensory neurons.
    1. Neuroscience

    Drosophila uses a tripod gait across all walking speeds, and the geometry of the tripod is important for speed control

    Chanwoo Chun et al.
    Drosophila uses a gait close to the tripod throughout its speed range, and changes in speed are accompanied by changes in the geometry of the tripod.
