    J Exp Biol 211:1211-20. 2008
    ..Thus, the LG produced all of the force required for limb extension during swing. This change in the pattern of force sharing between stance and swing supports the theory that force sharing between muscle synergists is task-dependent...

    Thomas J Roberts
    Brown University, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department, Box GB205, Providence, RI 02912, USA
    J Exp Biol 210:2510-7. 2007
    ..Taken together, the speed and slope results suggest that the demand for mechanical work is an important determinant of muscle length patterns in running and walking...

    Annette M Gabaldón
    Department of Zoology, Oregon State University, 3029 Cordley Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331, USA
    J Exp Biol 207:2277-88. 2004
    ..Our results show that the changing demands for whole body work during steady speed running are met, at least in part, by an ability of single muscles to shift mechanical function from net energy production to net energy absorption...

    Annette M Gabaldón
    Oregon State University, Department of Zoology, Corvallis, OR, USA
    Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 294:R200-10. 2008
    ..This observation is consistent with the idea that V/V(max) is an important determinant of locomotor cost because it affects the volume of muscle that must be recruited to support body weight...
  5. ncbi request reprint Force-velocity properties of two avian hindlimb muscles
    Frank E Nelson
    Zoology Institute, Oregon State University, 3029 Cordley Hall, Corvallis, OR 97331 2914, USA
    Comp Biochem Physiol A Mol Integr Physiol 137:711-21. 2004
    ..The force-velocity properties of turkey LG and PL muscle do not reveal any extreme differences in the mechanical potential between avian and other vertebrate muscle...
