Locomotion on the narrow and compliant supports of the arboreal environment is inherently precarious. Previous studies have identified a host of morphological and behavioral specializations in arboreal animals broadly thought to promote stability …

The sensory biology of bowhead whales reflects features both related to their origin from land mammals and adaptations to their current environment, polar seas. There is anatomical and genomic evidence that bowheads have a sense of smell. Their sense…

Objective: The objective of this study was to examine the longitudinal relationship between the elapsed time in the action and maintenance stages of change for multiple target behaviors and weight loss or gain. Research Methods and Procedures: The…

Background. The increasing prevalence of obesity and obesity-related conditions in primary care settings challenges the health care system. Thus. we used available baseline data from an on-going clinical trial to examine the biopsychosocial…

We evaluated the effect of impaired hearing and vision on balance in a sample of 977 elderly people residing in the community. Of the sample, 21% reported balance problems, 27% vision problems, and 30% hearing problems. The increased relative risk…

Despite the importance that concepts of arboreal stability have in theories of primate locomotor evolution, we currently lack measures of balance performance during primate locomotion. We provide the first quantitative data on locomotor stability in…
