SEB Brighton 2016 session report: Short range visual guidance in birds
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

While considerable attention has been devoted over the years to the study of long-range navigation in birds, there has been relatively little research on the short-range visual guidance of avian flight.

SEB Brighton 2016 session report: Moving to feeding
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

Recent studies of locomotor biomechanics have demonstrated the usefulness of detailing both the physical task of organismal performance and the physiological “currency” (force, power, work) of the underlying movements. Via this approach, researchers have clarified physiological constraints on musculoskeletal performance, but also how muscles sometimes circumvent those constraints.

SEB Brighton 2016 session Report: Dynamic organisation of the nucleus
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

The “Dynamic Organisation of the Nucleus” session was the first meeting of the SEB cell section special interest group “Nuclear Dynamics”. The focus of the 3-day session was to showcase the development of nucleus research in a wide variety of model organisms such as Arabidopsis, yeast, C. elegans, Dictyostelium, snails, trypanosomes, maize and mouse.

SEB Brighton 2016 session report: General Biomechanics
Autumn 2016
31 October 2016

The 1.5 days session of ‘General Biomechanics’ in Brighton, with 60 contributions (29 oral presentations and 31 posters) was definitely successful again. As usual, these contributions covered a wide diversity of topics (biomaterials, terrestrial locomotion, flight and swimming, adhesion, feeding mechanics, muscle mechanics, scaling...) presented by young, as well as more experienced and senior researchers.
