Researchers attach electrodes to a moth during its pupal stage, when the caterpillar is in a cocoon undergoing metamorphosis into its winged adult stage. By attaching electrodes to the muscle groups responsible for a moth’s flight, the researchers are able to monitor electromyographic signals — the electric signals the moth uses during flight to tell those muscles what to do.
