Data from: Joint torques in a freely walking insect reveal distinct functions of leg joints in propulsion and posture control

Chris Dallmann, Volker Dürr, Josef Schmitz & Chris J. Dallmann
Determining the mechanical output of limb joints is critical for understanding the control of complex motor behaviours such as walking. In the case of insect walking, the neural infrastructure for single-joint control is well described. However, a detailed description of the motor output in form of time-varying joint torques is lacking. Here, we determine joint torques in the stick insect to identify leg joint function in the control of body height and propulsion. Torques were...
