Behavioral probabilities and sample videos for \"Behavioral evidence for nested central pattern generator control of Drosophila grooming\"

Primoz Ravbar, Neil Zhang & Julie Simpson
Central pattern generators (CPGs) are neurons or neural circuits that produce periodic output without requiring patterned input. More complex behaviors can be assembled from simpler subroutines, and nested CPGs have been proposed to coordinate their repetitive elements, organizing control over different time-scales. Here, we use behavioral experiments to establish that Drosophila grooming may be controlled by nested CPGs. On a short time-scale (5-7 Hz), flies execute periodic leg sweeps and rubs. More surprisingly, transitions between...
