Furthermore, small improvements to experimental methodology, such as a reduction in injection volume (thereby avoiding possible hindlimb damage), resulted in a previously reported adverse neurobehavioral effect (Hornig et al.
2010) also pointed out that the hindlimb mechanics of vertical climbing and quadrupedal knuckle-walking are rather similar, involving highly flexed postures of the hip and knee, and suggested that it is in fact these locomotor behaviours that are likely to be functionally and ecologically linked.
