Abstract: This project seeks to find an alternative to controlling cockroach movement via traditional antennal stimulation by investigating the effects of abdominal stimulation on cockroach motion, and evaluating the suitability of said alternative should one be found. It was found that abdominal stimulation produces predominantly translational diagonal motion, and the effects of different electrode implantation sites on the produced diagonal motion has been documented in this report. While abdominal stimulation cannot fully replace antennal stimulation yet, the effect it produces is unique enough that further study is warranted.
