The Brainerd Laboratory

The laboratory of Dr. Elizabeth Brainerd
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology
Brown University

Professor Brainerd and her research group combine anatomical studies of the musculoskeletal system with principles and techniques from engineering to understand the mechanical basis of movement in animals. Current projects include: biomechanics of the temporomandibular joint, muscle architecture, intercostal muscle function, and the development of a new 3D imaging technology, X-ray Reconstruction of Moving Morphology
