Developing a musculoskeletal model of the primate skull

An accurate, dynamic, functional model of the skull that can be used to predict muscle forces, bite forces, and joint reaction forces would have many uses across a broad range of disciplines. One major issue however with musculoskeletal analyses is that of muscle activation pattern indeterminacy.

Developing a musculoskeletal model of the primate skull

This makes predicting physiological muscle recruitment patterns difficult. Here we describe in detail the process of development of a complex multibody computer model of a primate skull (Macaca fascicularis), that aims to …

Mechanoreceptors in articular tissues – Zimny – 1988

In the temporomandibular articular disk, the mechanoreceptor density is greatest at the periphery and progressively decreases toward the center. If a joint has an intra-articular structure, mechanoreceptors undoubtedly are present within it.

Four model variables were altered for sensitivity analyses: (a) the value used for intrinsic muscle strength; (b) the estimates of pennation angles by using the minimum, maximum and average estimates for each muscle; (c) the estimates of muscle fibre lengths by using the minimum, maximum and average estimates for each muscle; (d) muscle geometry …
