Callum F. Ross

Department of Organismal Biology and Anatomy
The University of Chicago

Research Interests:

In vivo research on the vertebrate feeding system uses bone strain, electromyography, videofluoroscopy and 3-D kinematic techniques to test hypotheses regarding the functional significance of variation in the morphology and function of the feeding system. I am currently investigating the scaling of safety factors and temporal variables in feeding kinematics and kinetics in primates to determine whether common principles apply to the locomotor and feeding systems. This includes questions regarding the modulation of motor activity during chewing and swallowing, performance costs, and common principles governing scaling of skeletal systems.
