Compared with human running, macaque leg retraction cannot merely be produced by hip extension, but needs to be supported by substantial knee flexion. As a result, despite quasi...

This study examined how saccades are coordinated with locomotor movements in a pectoral-fin-propelled teleost fish, Cymatogaster aggregata , the shiner surfperch. Individual fish were filmed swimming in a flow tank at 10 cm s −1 , and timing data were analysed using...
