    … An important habit of ciliates, namely, their behavioral preference for walls, is revealed through experiments and hydrodynamic simulations. … A simple mechanical response of individual ciliary beating (i.e., the beating is stalled by the cilium contacting a wall) can solely determine the sliding motion of the ciliate along the wall and result in a wall-preferring behavior. …
