- Functional anatomy and muscle moment arms of the pelvic limb of an elite sprinting athlete: the racing greyhound (Canis familiaris)S B Williams
Department of Veterinary Preclinical Sciences, University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
J Anat 213:361-72. 2008..The racing greyhound hence possesses substantial specializations for enhanced sprint performance...
- Exploring the mechanical basis for acceleration: pelvic limb locomotor function during accelerations in racing greyhounds (Canis familiaris)S B Williams
Department of Veterinary Preclinical Sciences, Faculty of Veterinary Science, The University of Liverpool, Liverpool, UK
J Exp Biol 212:550-65. 2009..This mechanism may also increase the mechanical advantage for applying the horizontal forces necessary for acceleration...
- Pitch then power: limitations to acceleration in quadrupedsSarah B Williams
Structure and Motion Laboratory, The Royal Veterinary College, University of London, Hatfield, Herts AL9 7TA, UK
Biol Lett 5:610-3. 2009..At low speed, acceleration and deceleration may be limited by the geometric constraints of avoiding net nose-up or tail-up pitching, respectively. At higher speeds, muscle power appears to limit acceleration...
- Mechanics of dog walking compared with a passive, stiff-limbed, 4-bar linkage model, and their collisional implicationsJames R Usherwood
The Royal Veterinary College, North Mymms, Hatfield, Herts, UK
J Exp Biol 210:533-40. 2007..Footfall timings and timing of mechanical energy fluctuations are consistent with strategies to reduce collisional forces, analogous to the suggested role of ankle extension as an efficient powering mechanism in human walking...
- The effect of lateral heel studs on the kinematics of the equine digit while cantering on grassAlison M Harvey
School of Veterinary Science, The University of Liverpool, Leahurst, Chester High Road, Neston CH46 7TE, UK
Vet J 192:217-21. 2012..The effect of repetitive usage of studs in the aetiology of musculoskeletal conditions should therefore be investigated further...
- Design and validation of a novel learning tool, the "Anato-Rug," for teaching equine topographical anatomyFrancesca Braid
Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences, The Royal Veterinary College, University of London, North Mymms, Hatfield, Hertfordshire, UK

- Doing dissections differently: a structured, peer-assisted learning approach to maximizing learning in dissectionsEmma R Hall
Department of Veterinary Basic Sciences, The Royal Veterinary College, University of London, London, UK
Anat Sci Educ 6:56-66. 2013..Although the new format highlighted a potential need to improve teamwork, most students actively engaged with DDD, with dissection classes valued more highly and utilized more effectively...
