Abstract

Effect of static load on activity of motor centers controlling motor activity (walking, flight) was studied in the American cockroach Periplaneta americana L. It has been established that under effect of load on the animal body the relative excitability of these centers increases. A suggestion is put forward about the presence of common neuronal elements in the generator networks providing motor acts in the American cockroach; a role of afferent systems in control of excitability of loco-motor centers functioning in the regime of static load is shown.
