MOVEMENT  MECHANICS,  DYNAMICAL  MECHANICAL  STRUCTURE  &  PATTERNS  of  MOTION  in  NATURE

The mechanical structures, mechanisms, system mechanics and patterns that determine motion are Wilson McCord's greatest interests and focus of research.  In the past, the neuromusculoskeletal system and locomotor apparatus has been central to the research to his research contributions.  On multiple levels, across numerous species and in varying academic disciplines, He has explored the physics and physiology of movement from the biosphere and whole organism down to the micro bio-mechanical structure of organells within the cell.  Today, Mr. McCord's endeavors have taken hin to his own physical research ideas at the smallest levels in nature, on atomic structure, quantum mechanics and decoherence.






































































Movement Mechanics, Dynamical Mechanical Structure and Patterns of Motion in Nature

Wilson McCord’s focus on the structural design and mechanics of life allowed extraordinary research experiences and contributions to projects in bio-physical science, many of which were post-doctoral level research appointments, which include; bio-mechanics, kinematics, mechanisms of movement, motility, micro-structure interactions, mechanical force, mechanical response to environmental change (field fluctuations); electrical activity (neurophysiology), energetics and thermoregulation ‘heat transfer’ (metabolic-physiology), biomechanical and bio-physical adaptation to environmental stress; space medicine, tissue mechanics, cellular and organismic response to changes in gravitational field and geo-physical pattern mapping of planetary trace (Greenhouse) gases of Earth, (NASA). Reverse engineering contributions include; bioengineering and biomedical engineering laboratory research on neuromusculoskeletal system regeneration; bone injury and disease healing and regeneration experiments; space medicine artificial gravity, microgravity and Earth gravity studies for bone regeneration towards new space technologies; biomechanical design and mechanisms of movement and motor control (electrical / nerve) for a bio-robotics project (DARPA).


MOTION & PATTERNS IN NATURE

The periodicity of nature allows examination of movement, patterns and mechanics. High speed digital video, 2000 frames per second (fps) of the dragon fly. Nature's patterns, even the planetary trace gases (here Greenhouse Gases) of Earth's industries, can be measured and quantified.



DYNAMICAL MECHANICAL STRUCTURE

Bio-mechanical structural support is supplied for stability and provide motion in all organismic bodies. (Bone in vertebrate right.) Muscle is designed to move the bio-mechanical structure.


ELECTRICAL ACTIVITY and MOTOR CONTROL

The motor unit, a motor neuron and multiple muscle fibers are the primary unit of motor control; the electrical control of muscle. Two neurons, one small that creates creates a large Excitation Post Synaptic Potential (EPSP) and one large that does not demonstrate Ohm’s Principle: V= IR The motor control of muscular activity is regulated by a motor neuron in the nervous system.


ENERGY

Energy is required for motion. Motor control research aides in determining place of storage, the amount and transfer of energy, during locomotor production of force in organisms. Energetics, the metabolic energy cost of producing force, measures an animal’s physiological movement through the environment: E = m/t . Energy use by muscle during the time of locomotion can be measured as : F = k VO2


KINEMATICS

Kinematics, the study of motion, permits the examination of the mechanical functionality of organismic dynamical structure.


MECHANISMS of MOVEMENT

Kinematic analysis and a comprehensive collection of bio-mechanical movements can aide in the discovery of the mechanisms responsible for energy storage.


MULTIPLE LEVEL SYSTEM ANALYSIS

Analytical and experimental data, along with new technologies, allow new visual quantitative approaches, both physically and dynamically, to the study of Nature.


REVERSE ENGINEERING

Reverse engineering, from basic science mechanics research allows projects on the micro and nano scale as well as nature inspired projects that aide in the exploration of space and the ocean.


THEORETICAL DYNAMICAL SYSTEM MECHANICS

Analysis of solitary system mechanics and contribution to an integrated complex system during movement function allows for each model to be fitted together.
