Mechanical and metabolic stresses contribute to high force contraction signaling
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-03-27)
Force production by a muscle is critical to maintaining proper function and overall health of a human or animal. Muscle adapts to increased loading with hypertrophy by activating a number of intracellular signaling cascades ...
Dynamic stability of quadrupedal locomotion: animal model, cortical control and prosthetic gait
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-11-13)
The ability to control balance and stability are essential to prevent falls during locomotion. Maintenance of stable locomotion is challenging especially when complicated by amputation and prosthesis use. Humans employ ...
Injury compensation reveals implicit goals that guide locomotor coordination
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-04-08)
Locomotion persists despite changes in external and internal circumstances. Motor responses to gait impairment exhibit commonalities across various taxa and types of injury, yet we lack a systematic understanding of ...
