The central complex is one of the most prominent, yet functionally enigmatic structures of the insect brain. Recently, behavioural, neuroanatomical and molecular approaches in Drosophila have joined forces to disclose specific components of higher locomotion control in larvae and adult flies, such as those that guarantee the optimal length and across-body symmetry of strides and an appropriate activity.
