A combination of behavioural testing and robotic modelling was used to investigate the interaction between sound localisation (phonotaxis) and optomotor following in crickets. Three hypotheses describing simple interactions summation, gain modulation and chaining-were eliminated, leaving efference copy as the most likely mechanism. A speculative but plausible model for predicting re-afference was implemented and evaluated on a robot.
