  1. 1. Legged locomotion Balance, control and tools - from equation to action

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Maskinkonstruktion

    Author : Christian Ridderström; KTH.; [2003]
    Keywords : legged locomotion; control; balance; legged machines; legged robots; walking robots; walking machines; compliance; platform stability;

    Abstract : This thesis is about control and balance stability of leggedlocomotion. It also presents a combination of tools that makesit easier to design controllers for large and complicated robotsystems. The thesis is divided into four parts. READ MORE

  2. 2. Computer Simulation of the Neural Control of Locomotion in the Cat

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Nalin Harischandra; KTH.; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Locomotion; Computer simulation; Central pattern generator; Muscle activation; Linear transfer functions; Sensory feedback; Neural control; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : Locomotion is one of the most important behaviours and requires interaction between sensors at various levels of the nervous system and the limb muscles of an animal. The basic neural rhythm for locomotion in mammals has been shown to arise from local neural networks residing in the spinal cord and these networks are known as central pattern generators (CPGs).

  3. 3. Computer Simulation of the Neural Control of Locomotion in the Cat and the Salamander

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Nalin Harischandra; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Locomotion; Computer simulation; Central pattern generator; System identification; Gait transition; Sensory feedback; Spiking neural networks;

    Abstract : Locomotion is an integral part of a whole range of animal behaviours. The basic rhythm for locomotion in vertebrates has been shown to arise from local networks residing in the spinal cord and these networks are known as central pattern generators (CPG). READ MORE

  4. 4. Spinal Control of Locomotion Developmental and Functional Aspects

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Nadine Rabe; Uppsala universitet.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neuronal network; commissural interneuron; developmental interneuron subtypes; V3; mouse genetics; Pitx2; axon guidance; netrin-1; DCC; EphA4; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neuroscience; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurovetenskap; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap; Medicinsk utvecklings- och neurobiologi; Developmental Neurosciences; Molekylär genetik; Molecular Genetics;

    Abstract : Neuronal networks are the central functional units of the nervous system. Knowledge about the identity of participating neurons and the assembly of these during development is crucial for the understanding of CNS function. READ MORE

  5. 5. Motility of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes : An image processing approach

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Mikael Gustafsson; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human polymorphonuclear leukocytes; locomotion; phagocytosis; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; membrane transport; intracellular free calcium; cellular pH; water influx; actin dynamics; digital video microscopy; image processing; fura-2; BCECF; DII; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Cell motility is essential for polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) function in the defense against invading microorganisms and in inflammatory processes. Using digital video microscopy and image processing, individual cells were studied during random locomotion, chemotactic locomotion and phagocytosis. READ MORE
