  • Literature Update

    Here is this week's installment of recently published articles re:
    Locomotion or Biomechanics.
    I have decided to not include any cellular biomechanics. Though that may
    be the most active area of biomechanics research today, it does not seem to
    be a common topic on Biomch-L. I also am not including any citations from
    J. Biomechanics since Elsevier can send you their table of contents
    automatically in a much more timely manner.
    Sub-headings this week: Comparative, Muscle, Locomotion, Motor Control and
