... 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...

...) and 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...

..., 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...

... parameters with path radius in mice are compared to those observed in humans and to the predictions of Greene and McMahon ( 1979 ). Any feature reducing rotational inertia would, therefore, reduce the torque required to achieve a given level of angular acceleration and may improve turning agility...

...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...
