Motion and muscles don't always work in lockstep, researchers find in surprising new study
Date:3/14/2014

muscle function could well apply to a variety of fields," Foster said.

The study's findings also raise new questions in ecomorphology how habitat and environment affect an organism's anatomy. The study found that muscle activity in the green anoles was most consistent on broad, vertical surfaces, such as tree trunks, "suggesting that, despite being classified as a trunk-crown ecomorph, this species may prefer trunks," Foster said.

The study has implications also for people who design artificial limbs or robots.

"Clearly, locomotion is not as simple as we thought it was," Foster said. "This decoupling big changes in movement without corresponding changes in muscle activity suggests there are other important factors going on and we need to better understand them if we want to reproduce these movements in prosthetics or robotics."
