- Clarifying tetrapod embryogenesis by a dorso-ventral analysis of the tissue flows during early stages of chicken developmentVincent Fleury
Laboratoire Matière et Systèmes Complexes, Universite Paris Diderot, 10 rue Alice Domont et Léonie Duquet, 75013 Paris, France
Biosystems 109:460-74. 2012..Thus, the formation of the vertebrate body is fixed, as a global movement, by the dynamics of singular points in the visco-elastic flow, governed by mechanical forces within the tissue...
- Dynamic topology of the cephalochordate to amniote morphological transition: a self-organized system of Russian dollsVincent Fleury
Laboratoire MSC, Universite Paris Diderot, Paris, France
C R Biol 334:91-9. 2011..In addition, the phenomenon has a mirror symmetry in the anterior and in the posterior part, thereby explaining naturally the existence of animals having a caudal heart...
- Hyperbolic symmetry breaking and its role in the establishment of the body plan of vertebratesVincent Fleury
Laboratoire Matière et Systèmes Complexes, Universite Paris Diderot, France
C R Biol 334:505-15. 2011..The broken symmetry of the flow is up-scaled in the adult animal. Areas with straightforward tissue movement are the ones where axial structures develop. The lateral domains with vortex-like flow colocalize with the future limb plates...
