    • Imaging fictive locomotor patterns in larval Drosophila 

      Pulver, Stefan R; Bayley, Timothy G; Taylor, Adam L; Berni, Jimena; Bate, Christopher Michael; Hedwig, Berthold Gerhard (American Physiological Society, 2015-08-26)
      We have established a preparation in larval Drosophila to monitor fictive locomotion simultaneously across abdominal and thoracic segments of the isolated CNS using genetically encoded Ca2+ indicators. The Ca2+ signals ...
    • Selective inhibition mediates the sequential recruitment of motor pools 

      Zwart, Maarten F; Pulver, Stefan R; Truman, James W; Fushiki, Akira; Cardona, Albert; Landgraf, Matthias (Elsevier (Cell Press), 2016-07-14)
      Locomotor systems generate diverse motor patterns to produce the movements underlying behavior, requiring that motor neurons be recruited at various phases of the locomotor cycle. Reciprocal inhibition produces alternating ...
