...Nathan E. Thompson; Danielle Rubinstein; William Parrella-O'Donnell; Matthew A. Brett; Brigitte Demes; Susan G. Larson; Matthew C. O'Neill ABSTRACT Human bipedalism entails relatively short strides compared with facultatively bipedal primates. Unique non-sagittal-plane motions associated...

... predict that an increasing number of obstacles will increase the frequency of pausing and decrease sprint velocity. Furthermore, bipedal running over multiple obstacles is predicted to maintain greater mean sprint velocity compared with quadrupedal running, thereby revealing a potential advantage...

... from spinal neural networks ( d'Avella and Bizzi, 2005 ; Chvatal and Ting, 2012 ; Bizzi and Cheung, 2013 ). For example, control commands might relate to limb extension and limb retraction, representing a reduced-order model of bipedal locomotion similar to those presented in Birn-Jeffery et al...

...Christofer J. Clemente; Philip C. Withers; Graham Thompson; David Lloyd SUMMARY Bipedal locomotion by lizards has previously been considered to provide a locomotory advantage. We examined this premise for a group of quadrupedal Australian agamid lizards, which vary in the extent to which...
