Insects May Not Need Muscle To Move Limbs
2013-07-18 18:46:25

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom has found that insect limbs are capable of moving without the use of muscles - a finding that could have implications for the fields of medicine and robotics. According to the UK scientists' report in Current Biology, "passive joint forces" allows some insects to return their limbs to a preferred resting position after being extended. Lead researcher Tom Matheson,...

An international group of scientists has shown that a drug candidate designed by scientists from the Florida campus of The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) significantly increases exercise endurance in animal models. These findings could lead to new approaches to helping people with conditions that acutely limit exercise tolerance, such as obesity, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and congestive heart failure, as well as the decline of muscle capacity associated with aging....

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online For the past 50 years, scientists and health professionals have operated with the knowledge that biceps are packed with long ropes of filaments. When the bicep is used to lift a heavy object or flex, these filaments were understood to shorten or contract the muscle and give it its power. A new study from the University of Washington (UW) challenges this notion, saying that while the general idea of filaments contracting is the same,...

Children with Duchenne muscular dystrophy often die as young adults from heart and breathing complications. However, scientists have been puzzled for decades by the fact that laboratory mice bearing the same genetic mutation responsible for the disease in humans display only mild symptoms and no cardiac involvement. Now, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have developed a mouse model that accurately mimics the course of the disease in humans. The study is the first...

Bats Use Recycled Energy For Take-off
2013-07-07 20:17:49

Society for Experimental Biology [ Video 1 ] [ Video 2 ] Bats are uniquely able to stretch and store energy in their bicep and tricep tendons during take-off and climbing flight, giving them an extra power boost. A new study on fruitbats, to be presented at the meeting of the Society for Experimental in Valencia on July 4, used cutting edge technology to image how these small mammals move through the air. Dr Nicolai Konow (Brown University, USA), who led the research said: "Energy...

Muscle is soft tissue that is filled with protein filaments that manipulates the shape of a cell which can help with posture, movement and functions of other organs in the body such as the lungs and heart as well as the digestive tract. Formation and Orientation There are three different types of muscle tissues; skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscles. Skeletal muscle is used to hold together and monitor skeletal movements. Posture is mainly controlled by skeletal muscles located along...
