... movements were of lower magnitude for all degrees of freedom examined (jaw protraction, yaw and pitch), and were bilaterally symmetrical with virtually no yaw. The magnitude of tongue protraction–retraction (Tx t ), relative to a mandibular coordinate system, was greater during mastication than during...

... of elevating tissue temperature to increase the rate of chemical processes. Yet, movement performance that is robust to changes in body temperature has been observed in numerous species. This thermally robust performance appears exceptional in light of the well-documented effects of temperature on muscle...

...Rebecca Wheatley; Christofer J. Clemente; Amanda C. Niehaus; Diana O. Fisher; Robbie S. Wilson ABSTRACT Movement speed can underpin an animal's probability of success in ecological tasks. Prey often use agility to outmanoeuvre predators; however, faster speeds increase inertia and reduce agility...

... efficiency of finding foothold by avoiding searching-movements in trailing legs. In stick insects, a ‘targeting mechanism’ has been described that guides foot-placement of hind- and middle legs according to the position of their leading ipsilateral leg. So far, this mechanism has been shown for standing...

Here, we quantified the 3D kinematics of forelimb movement for frogs moving across branches of different diameters (1 and 40 mm) and two different inclines...

... carried out in a fins-first direction. Temporal summation of such climb-and-glide events underlies a rich assortment of vertical movements that can reach vertical velocities of 3 m s −1 . In contrast to such rapid movements, D. gigas spends more than 80% of total time gliding at a vertical velocity...

To evaluate the potential anti-attachment effect of algal mats on sea urchins, a laboratory tank experiment was performed on the movement of Strongylocentrotus nudus sea urchins and their grazing on juvenile kelp plants at the center of 30×30 cm flat test...

In our experiment, an orienting response led to a sudden, rapid spin of the ball in the direction opposite to that of the stimulus. Because of their speed and discrete nature, orientation movements are easily distinguished from other...

Perhaps most surprising is the presence of a flexion point within the merus segment at the base of the rotatable meral-V; no equivalent flexion point exists on the opposite side of the merus. Instead, a thickened bar of exoskeleton on the medial side...
