  • natural locomotion
  • This volume developed from a Workshop on Natural Locomotion in Fluids and on Surfaces: Swimming, Flying, and Sliding which was held at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) at the University of Minnesota, from June 1-5, 2010. (springer.com)
  • They provide a representative if necessarily incomplete account of the field of natural locomotion during a period of rapid growth and expansion. (springer.com)
  • bipedal locomotion
  • This locomotory complex is interpreted as individual variability and suggests an evolutionary model for the origin of hominid bipedal locomotion. (springer.com)
  • However, these muscles do influence our ability to produce forward propulsion from one stride into the next, highlighting their role in bipedal locomotion. (pnas.org)
  • Human feet have evolved to facilitate bipedal locomotion, losing an opposable digit that grasped branches in favor of a longitudinal arch (LA) that stiffens the foot and aids bipedal gait. (pnas.org)
  • locomotor
  • Despite these apparent differences in modes of locomotion, both vertebrate and invertebrate species share, at least in part, comparable neural control mechanisms for locomotor rhythm and pattern generation and modulation. (eurekalert.org)
  • biology
  • This multi-functionality of the gecko adhesive system permits effective locomotion on both uphill and downhill slopes," said Timothy Higham , an assistant professor of biology, in whose lab the research was done. (redorbit.com)
  • 1998
  • Chance SS, Gaunet F, Beall AC, Loomis JM (1998) Locomotion mode affects the updating of objects encountered during travel: the contribution of vestibular and proprioceptive inputs to path integration. (springer.com)
  • Christensen R, Hollerbach JM, Xu Y, Meek S (1998) Inertial force feedback for a locomotion interface. (springer.com)
  • content
  • University of Copenhagen researchers have identified two areas of the midbrain that appear to play specific roles in the start, speed and content of dependent selection of locomotion in mice. (neurosciencenews.com)
  • focuses
  • The article focuses on the use of locomotion scoring in the U.S. which Mike Hutjens, extension dairy nutritionist at the University of Illinois, regard it as an efficient way of managing lameness in cows. (ebscohost.com)
  • evolution
  • The evolution of advanced locomotion on land-that is, locomotion that is more erect, balanced and mechanically power-saving than is assumed of anamniote early tetrapods-has previously been linked to the terrestrialization and diversification of amniote lineages 7 . (nature.com)
  • Gingerich, P. D. Land-to-sea transition in early whales: evolution of Eocene Archaeoceti (Cetacea) in relation to skeletal proportions and locomotion of living semiaquatic mammals. (nature.com)
  • Thus locomotion and digestion are linked in evolution. (umn.edu)
  • dependent
  • We studied the flow of corticothalamic (CT) information from the motor cortex of the cat during two types of locomotion: visually guided (cortex dependent) and unguided. (jneurosci.org)
  • name
  • Name of the transform in the hierarchy that controls the locomotion of the character (i.e. the node that has translation channels that move it forward in space). (sidefx.com)
  • Optional name of a transform in the hierarchy, which is used to extract an overall rotation using the vector from the Locomotion Node to this transform. (sidefx.com)
  • field
  • This review article will provide a brief introduction to Drosophila larval locomotion for researchers who are new to the field and curious about what tiny maggots tell us. (eurekalert.org)
  • force
  • The decrease in mass-specific muscle force in mammals weighing 0.1 to 300 kilogram indicates that peak muscle stresses are also constant and correlates with a decrease in mass-specific energy cost of locomotion. (sciencemag.org)
