Abstract

We describe the demonstration of moth Manduca sexta flight control via pupae-implanted MEMS-based electrodes that directly interface with the central nervous system (CNS). We have developed a flexible electrode array that provides multisite electrical stimulation of an interganglionic bundle of nerve fibers in the moth's abdominal nerve cord (analogous to a vertebrate's spinal cord). These electrodes were able to stimulate the abdomen motion of pupae and adult moths leading to a change in flight direction of tethered adult moths.
