A phenomenological model of the mechanism of stabilization of the dorsal-side-up orientation in the lamprey is suggested. Mathematical modeling is based on the experimental results on investigation of postural control in lampreys using combined in vivo and robotics approaches. Dynamics of the model agrees qualitatively with the experiment. It is shown by computer simulations that postural correction commands from one or several reticulospinal neurons provide information which may be sufficient for stabilization of body orientation in the lamprey.
