In some aeglids, the electroshock (over 30 Hz) causes loss of pereiopods, altering their locomotory ability but did not affect their predatory behavior (Fig.
Based on preliminary studies [29, 30], the following 7 parameters were screened to characterize the movement data for each 5 s segment: speed (mm/s), acceleration (mm/[s.sup.2]), locomotory rate (mm/s), stop number (n), stop time (s), turning rate (rad/s, angular change divide by time), and meander (rad/mm, angle change per movement distance).
This on the other hand could have a positive impact on better understanding of the effects of this biophysical stimulation in frame of the conservative treatment of degenerative diseases of the locomotory system.
This response may not be attributable to an intrinsic abnormality in the locomotory function of these cells, since we previously demonstrated that eosinophils recovered from diabetic animals showed no alteration in the locomotory function evaluated in vitro [24].
