Central pattern generators (CPGs) have traditionally been modeled as sets of coupled bistable oscillators (Marder and Calabrese, Physiol. Rev. 76(3) (1996) 687}717). We present a framework for constructing models which avoid the shortcomings of these traditional models, while remaining biologically plausible. We demonstrate our approach by generating a novel model of lamprey locomotion. However, we suggest that the methods presented here can be more generally applied to modeling any neural system which produces and controls dynami
