Sample text

To allow this circuit to control both the original wall‐following behavior and escape behavior, it was necessary to modulate these connections according to whether the robot was stationary (in which case antennal input is a predator and should produce an escape response) or moving (in which case antennal input is more likely to be self generated by running into an obstacle). The modulation was produced by connecting the forward drive neurons from the motor circuit to the appropriate synapses from sensors to interneurons (Chapman and Webb, 2006).
