Multibody dynamics modelling of the masticatory system of the house mouse (Mus musculus)
TLDR
The author’s declaration and introduction and literature review are described as “exemplary” and “compelling”. Expand
The Functional and Phylogenetic Implications of the Myology of the Lumbar Region, Tail, and Hind Limbs of the Lesser Grison (Galictis cuja)
TLDR
The first description of the myology of the hind limbs, and lumbar, sacral, and caudal regions of the lesser grison, a short-legged South American mustelid, including muscle maps and weight data is presented, to interpret the function and the evolution of several muscular features within a comparative framework and through the optimization of these traits onto a phylogeny. Expand
Comparative analysis of the subcutaneous musculature in some hystricomorph rodents (Rodentia: Hystricomorpha)
TLDR
It can be assumed that the progressive development and complication of the subcutaneous muscle in the evolution of hystricomorphs was largely conditioned by the requirement to improve their locomotor functions during a broad adaptive radiation of this group. Expand
Comparative anatomy of the brachial plexus in Coypu ( Myocastor coypus ; Rodentia )
This study reports the morphology of the brachial plexus in the coypu (Myocastor coypus) of the suborder Hystricomorpha, Rodentia, for which no detailed description has been reported. In addition,Expand
Myology of Hystricognath Rodents: An Analysis of Form, Function, and Phylogeny
TLDR
The location, innervation, size, shape, number of parts, relative position, presence or absence, and even function of muscles have been used to establish the phylogenetic relationships of various rodent taxa. Expand
Anatomy of the hindlimb musculature in the cursorial caviomorph Dasyprocta azarae Lichtenstein, 1823 (Rodentia, Dasyproctidae): functional and evolutionary significance
TLDR
The musculature of the hindlimb of the cursorial caviomorph Dasyprocta azarae is described and functionally evaluated, together with osteological associated traits, and several features are indicative of emphasized parasagittal movements and stabilized joints. Expand
Anatomy of the hindlimb musculature in the cursorial caviomorph Dasyprocta azarae Lichtenstein, 1823 (Rodentia, Dasyproctidae): functional and evolutionary significance
The musculature of the hindlimb of the cursorial caviomorph Dasyprocta azarae is described and functionally evaluated, together with osteological associated traits. Our results show that severalExpand
Functional Anatomy of Incisal Biting in Aplodontia rufa and Sciuromorph Rodents – Part 1: Masticatory Muscles, Skull Shape and Digging
TLDR
The present work is a detailed comparison of the masticatory apparatus in A. rufa and Marmota monax, the woodchuck, and finds the mandibular region of A.rufa appears remarkable, unlike anything found in other rodents. Expand
Masticatory muscle architecture in the gundi Ctenodactylus vali (Mammalia, Rodentia)
TLDR
The first descriptive comparison of the skull, mandible and jaw muscles of the North African gundi Ctenodactylus vali is presented, offering a rare opportunity to assess the morphological variation of the masticatory apparatus among Ctenohystrica. Expand
THE AURICLE MUSCLES IN THE RELICT RODENT LAONASTES AENIGMAMUS (RODENTIA: DIATOMYIDAE)
TLDR
The obtained results do not contradict the available morphological and molecular data supporting the close affinity between Diatomyidae and Ctenodactylidae. Expand

Masticatory Function in the Mammals
TLDR
The pronounced disparity in the information available on the evolution of the masticatory apparatus and on its mechanism of function compared with that on the teeth can be explained by the preferential fossilization of the latter and on the particular interest of the problem of mammalian molar evolution.
