- A motor and a brake: two leg extensor muscles acting at the same joint manage energy differently in a running insectA N Ahn
Department of Integrative Biology, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA 94720 3140, USA
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...
- In vivo and in vitro heterogeneity of segment length changes in the semimembranosus muscle of the toadA 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...
- Walking and running in the red-legged running frog, Kassina maculataA N Ahn
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...
