Published: 24 August 2020
... detailed view on the muscular dynamics during the turning maneuver would require measurement of muscle activity along the body. Given the small size of zebrafish, it is not possible to directly record electrical activity in body musculature from multiple locations along both sides of the body during free...

...Frank E. Fish; Allison Kolpas; Andrew Crossett; Michael A. Dudas; Keith W. Moored; Hilary Bart-Smith ABSTRACT For aquatic animals, turning maneuvers represent a locomotor activity that may not be confined to a single coordinate plane, making analysis difficult, particularly in the field. To measure...

... to function as control surfaces that effect maneuvers, but quantitative tests of this hypothesis have been lacking. Here, we constructed a simple hydrodynamic model to predict the longitudinal-axis roll performance of fin whales, and we tested its predictions against kinematic data recorded by on-board...

... suggests specialization of caudal muscle roles. Fine control of fin elements is probably responsible for the range of fin conformations observed during different maneuvering behaviors. Here, we examine the kinematics of the caudal fin and the motor activity of the intrinsic caudal musculature during kick...

...T. L. Hedrick; A. A. Biewener SUMMARY Maneuvering flight has long been recognized as an important component of the natural behavior of many bird species, but has been the subject of little experimental work. Here we examine the kinematics and neuromuscular control of turning flight in the rose...

... to achieve higher braking forces at higher swimming speeds without altering body or fin kinematics. This result can likely be extended to other maneuvers such as turning. To determine whether the species differ morphologically, an analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed using species (fixed...

... slow speed maneuvers (0.5 TL s –1 ). By digitizing points along every other fin ray in the soft-rayed portion of the fins we were able to determine not only the movement of the fin surface but also the curvature of individual fin rays and the resulting fin surface shape. We found that dorsal and anal...
