Recording hawk moth brain signals

Recording hawk moth brain signals

A hawk moth (Manduca sexta) flaps its wings as tiny wires transmit the signals produced by its muscles to a computer for analysis. The research showed that millisecond changes in timing of the action potential spikes conveys the majority of information the moth uses to coordinate the muscles in its wings.
