- Cortical bone distribution in the femoral neck of strepsirhine primatesB Demes
Dept of Anatomical Sciences, State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY 11794 8081, USA
J Hum Evol 39:367-79. 2000..g., a thicker inferior cortex is required to reinforce the strongly curved inferior surface). As in prior studies of cross-sectional geometry of long bones, we found slightly positive allometry of cortical dimensions with body mass...
- Myological correlates of prosimian leapingB Demes
Department of Anatomical Sciences, State University of New York, Stony Brook 11794 8081, USA
J Hum Evol 34:385-99. 1998..Larger-bodied leapers therefore have less muscle force available per unit body weight to be propelled than their smaller-bodied counterparts...
- Patterns of strain in the macaque ulna during functional activityB Demes
Department of Anatomical Sciences, School of Medicine, State University of New York, Stony Brook 11794 8081, USA
Am J Phys Anthropol 106:87-100. 1998..The lack of buttressing in the loaded plane and the somewhat counterintuitive bending direction recommend caution with regard to conventional interpretations of long bone cross-sectional geometry...
- Physical activity engendering loads from diverse directions augments the growing skeletonI J Wallace
Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences, Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, NY 11794, USA
J Musculoskelet Neuronal Interact 13:283-8. 2013..An experiment was conducted to determine if modifying habitual activities to involve mechanical loading from more diverse directions can enhance the growing skeleton...
- Takeoff and landing forces of leaping strepsirhine primatesB Demes
Department of Anatomical Sciences, School of Medicine, State University of New York, Stony Brook, NY 11794 8081, USA
J Hum Evol 37:279-92. 1999..Forces associated with other locomotor activities do not appear to follow this pattern. The very high forces found in strepsirhine leapers do not seem to be matched by bone robusticity beyond that documented for quadrupedal species...
