Although the hind limb usually is considered to pro vide the propulsive force in lizard locomotion, no study to date has analyzed motor or kinematic patterns of the lizard hind limb during running for more than one stride for a single individual. Quantitative electromyography and kinematic data are used to describe the motor pat terns of 11 muscles of the hind limb used during quadru pedal running in the lizard Sceloporus clarki. Basic kine matic patterns of hind-limb and axial movements are de… CONTINUE READING
