Abstract: In locust local circuits that control limb movements, the neural signals are processed by both spiking and nonspiking interneurons that operate in parallel to process sensory information. These interneurons receive sensory inputs from leg mechanoreceptors and together project to leg motor neuron pools. The main feature of the nonspiking interneurons is their ability to communicate with other neurons without the intervention of nerve impulses, or spikes, so that they exert graded control over their postsynaptic motor neurons, while spiking local interneurons communicate by means of action potentials and are involved in the integration of sensory signals. Our work presents an investigation from different classes of neurons driven by random Gaussian excitatory movements to a proprioceptor at the knee joint. The underlying aim of this work was to use information theory in understanding connectivity in the neural network.
