... generate or dissipate energy based on the energetic requirements of the center of mass during non-steady-state locomotion. In order to examine contributions of the foot and its muscles to non-steady-state locomotion, we compared the energetics of the foot and ankle joint while jumping and landing before...

...Suzanne M. Cox; Gary B. Gillis ABSTRACT Controlled landing requires preparation. Mammals and bipedal birds vary how they prepare for landing by predicting the timing and magnitude of impact from the integration of visual and non-visual information. Here, we explore how the cane toad Rhinella marina...

...Laura J. Ekstrom; Gary B. Gillis ABSTRACT Coordinated landing requires preparation. Muscles in the limbs important for decelerating the body should be activated prior to impact so that joints may be stiffened and limbs stabilized during landing. Moreover, because landings vary in impact force...

...Emanuel Azizi; Neil P. Larson; Emily M. Abbott; Nicole Danos A controlled landing, where an animal does not crash or topple, requires enough stability to allow muscles to effectively dissipate mechanical energy. Toads ( Rhinella marina ) are exemplary models for understanding the mechanics...

...C. Evangelista; P. Kraft; M. Dacke; J. Reinhard; M. V. Srinivasan SUMMARY Although landing is a crucial part of insect flight, it has attracted relatively little study. Here, we investigate, for the first time, the final moments of a honeybee's ( Apis mellifera ) landing manoeuvre. Using high-speed...

... contacts during locust landing and locomotion. At substrate contact, proximal leg CS contribute to very rapid motor responses supporting the body. We thank the DFG (Hu 223/10) for partial support and Dr Peter Bräunig and Mrs. Anja Becher for reading earlier versions of the English manuscript...
