... changing terrains or responding to a sudden change in body mass and orientation. Lizards such as the leopard gecko ( Eublepharis macularius ) employ autotomy – a voluntary detachment of a portion of the tail – to escape predation. Tail autotomy represents a natural form of significant (and localized) mass...

..., muscles must also respond to morphological changes, such as those that occur with tail autotomy in lizards. Tail autotomy in leopard geckos ( Eublepharis macularius ) results in a 25% loss of caudal mass and significant kinematic alterations to maintain stability. To elucidate how motor control...

Both stressors resulted in elevations in corticosterone within physiologically relevant levels, though the implants resulted in significantly higher levels than did...

...Gary B. Gillis; Lauren A. Bonvini; Duncan J. Irschick SUMMARY Voluntary loss of an appendage, or autotomy, is a remarkable behavior that is widespread among many arthropods and lower vertebrates. Its immediate benefit, generally escape from a predator, is balanced by various costs,including...

..., and they are therefore lost, along with the limb, upon autotomy, leaving the severed, distal axonal stumps of the sensory neurons within the ganglionic root. During the regeneration of a limb, new sensory neurons develop within the limb, and their axons must then grow into the ganglionic root to make the appropriate...

.... Moreover, our experiments suggest that cell C activity is strongly involved in the onset and the maintenance of swimming behaviour. Swimming can be altered by autotomy of legs on one side performed a few days in advance, and leads to the same turning tendency as does contralateral cutting of a connective...

...U. Bässler ABSTRACT Autotomized legs of the stick insect Cuniculina impigra bend rapidly and rhythmically at the femur-tibia joint. These flexions occur at a frequency of 1–6 Hz immediately after autotomy and decrease in frequency and amplitude with time. Each flexion is produced by a burst of 1–14...
