... wood mice revealed higher levels of locomotion and exploration than C57BL/6J mice. Learning and memory performance in the novel object recognition test was similar in both Formosan wood mice and C57BL/6J mice, but more agile responses in the inhibitory avoidance discrimination task were found in...

... employed more body adjustments (i.e. mantle angle posturing) during approaches toward shrimp versus fish. Squid exhibited higher linear approach/strike velocities and accelerations with faster-swimming fish prey compared with slower shrimp prey. Agility (i.e. turning rate) during prey encounters was...

..., Sepia bandensis , were filmed during turns using high-speed cameras. Kinematic features were tracked, including the length-specific radius of the turn ( R / L ), a measure of maneuverability, and angular velocity (ω), a measure of agility. Both L. brevis and S. bandensis demonstrated high...

... evident. Within our quality-corrected data, 1500 m-speed (endurance) was negatively associated with squat time (power), jump distance (power) and agility speed – reflecting the expected speed–endurance trade-off; and degree of specialisation was negatively associated with average performance across tasks...

... distant visual cues to a greater extent to enable them to maneuver through the terrain. Both overall agility and ideal kinematics for a running turn are highly dependent on the body form and gait parameters of the subject organism. Mice in trotting postures have higher rotational inertia about...

... heavy tail. In the evolution of therapsids and early mammals, loss of the large heavy tail and replacement of the caudofemoralis with the hamstrings as the major hindlimb retractor gave rise to animals with greatly reduced rotational inertia and, therefore, probably much greater agility. We thank...

...David R. Carrier; Rebecca M. Walter; David V. Lee SUMMARY The turning agility of theropod dinosaurs may have been severely limited by the large rotational inertia of their horizontal trunks and tails. Bodies with mass distributed far from the axis of rotation have much greater rotational inertia...
