A description is given of the functional morphology of the intrinsic joints of the foot, with particular reference to the primates, and an attempt is made to define the key human derived features. In the human subtalar joint the compromise axis has become reoriented into a very elevated position and more nearly in line with the functional foot axis than it(More)
The fossil record supports the conclusions derived from the study of extant species that the Primates evolved a unique suite of characters in the articulations of the foot. The tarsal bones of African Miocene apes show specializations characteristic of hominoid evolution and provide reasonable precursors for the morphology of Pan, Gorilla and even Pongo.(More)
The claim that lorisines possess wrist joint specialisations that parallel those in hominoids is refuted. The cautious, quadrupedal climbing lorisines therefore do not provide an adequate model for the locomotion of emergent hominoids, as has been suggested. The notion that the Hominoidea possess unique wrist joint synapomorphies facilitating an increased(More)
It is shown that in form and function the articular complexes of the monotreme foot are pre-adaptive to the therian condition, but the echidna differs by having a tuber calcaneus which is directed downward and distally. The cynodont foot (TR. 8) and that of the Triassic mammal Eozostrodon seem to possess the essential articular features present in(More)
Based on a clinical theory that guides an interpersonal approach to adolescent psychotherapy, the author advances the proposal that there is a developmental sequence of the capacity for relatedness from early to late adolescence: from a stage of Detachment in Relatedness through Disappointment in Relatedness to Mature Relatedness. In this paper, evidence(More)
Although various authors have discussed the technical modification required for dream interpretation with children, the basic conceptualization of the psychotherapeutic use of the dream with children has remained virtually identical to that with adult analysands. Examining various sources including formal studies on the nature of children's dreams, clinical(More)
