Recent experiments on the sensory and central mechanisms that coordinate animal locomotory movements have advanced our understanding of the relative importance of these two components and overturned some previously held notions. In different experimental preparations, sensory inputs and central pattern generators have now been shown to play different roles in setting intersegmental phase lags.
