... the relative contributions of lower and higher frequency signals of cat ankle extensors (soleus, medial and lateral gastrocnemii, plantaris) during level, downslope and upslope walking and the paw-shake response. This was done using the first two myoelectric signal principal components (PCI, PCII), explaining...

... the correlation between size and posture of mammalian limbs, we quantified the scaling relationships between mass and limb dimensions and kinematics during walking of nine species within the felid(cat) clade, which has qualitatively similar limb design. We studied the domestic cat, serval, ocelot, lynx, leopard...

...Motoshi Kaya; Tim Leonard; Walter Herzog SUMMARY We studied force-sharing behavior between the cat medial gastrocnemius (MG)and soleus (SOL) muscles by direct measurement of the muscle forces and electromyographic activities (EMGs), muscle lengths, speeds of contraction,joint kinematics...

.... The present study examined whether a relationship exists between maximum takeoff velocity(TOV) and several carefully chosen morphological and physiological traits in domestic cats ( Felis silvestris catus ). Based on the contributions of extensor muscle work to increasing the kinetic and potential energy...

... and fast myotomal muscles were measured in the rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss . These two muscle fibre types generated distinct low and high myoelectric frequency bands. The cat paw-shake is an activity that recruits mainly fast muscle. This study showed that the myoelectric signal from the medial...
