Data from: Vision fine-tunes preparation for landing in the cane toad, Rhinella marina

Laura J. Ekstrom, Christopher Panzini, Gary B. Gillis & Chris Panzini
In toad hopping, the hindlimbs generate the propulsive force for takeoff while the forelimbs resist the impact forces associated with landing. Preparing to perform a safe landing, in which impact forces are managed appropriately, likely involves the integration of multiple types of sensory feedback. In toads, vestibular and/or proprioceptive feedback are critical for coordinated landing, however, the role of vision remains unclear. To clarify this role, this study compares pre-landing forelimb muscle activation patterns in...
