Ladder-walking locusts show big brains aren't always best
Date:12/24/2009

rent animals have evolved totally different strategies for doing similar tasks," he says.

As well as illustrating how insects can achieve similar results to mammals by using simpler mechanisms, the findings deepen our understanding of locusts' neural circuits.

This is important because locusts have been a model organism for studying limb control for the past 40 years. Insects such as the locust have been crucial to many breakthroughs in neuroscience, and insects are often the inspiration for limb control in robotics.
