Asymmetric bipedal locomotion – an adaptive response to incomplete spinal injury in the chick

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare the asymmetric gait induced by unilateral spinal cord injury in chicks with asymmetric gaits of other bipeds and quadrupeds. After lateral hemisection of the left thoracic spinal cord, kinetic (ground reaction forces) and kinematic (distance and timing) data were recorded as chicks moved overground unrestrained… (More)
