A wing synchronous receptor for the Dipteran flight motor

Jaleel A. Miyan, Arthur W. Ewing

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    The existence of proprioceptive influences has been inferred in the Dipteran flight motor system but the sensory receptors(s) responsible has not been identified. We describe a wing-base structure which is widespread, and probably universal in the Diptera, which possesses the requisite mechanical and neurophysiological properties to provide such proprioceptive feedback. © 1984.
