    J Exp Biol 205:379-89. 2002
    ..Presumed redundancy in a multiple muscle group may, therefore, represent diversity in muscle function. Discovering how muscles manage energy during behavior requires the measurement of a large number of dynamically interacting variables...

    A N Ahn
    Concord Field Station, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Old Causeway Road, Bedford, MA 01730, USA
    J Physiol 549:877-88. 2003
    ..Understanding regional differences in contractile dynamics within muscles is therefore important to linking our understanding of sarcomere behaviour with whole muscle behaviour during locomotion...

    Concord Field Station, MCZ, Harvard University, Old Causeway Road, Bedford, MA 01730, USA
    J Exp Biol 207:399-410. 2004
    ..Depending on the definition used to distinguish between walking and running, Kassina either only used a walking gait at all speeds or used a walking gait at slower speeds but then switched to a running gait as speed increased...
