Biological motion stimuli, such as orthographically projected stick figure walkers, are ambiguous about their orientation in depth. The projection of a stick figure walker oriented towards the viewer, therefore, is the same as its projection when oriented away. Even though such figures are depth-ambiguous, however, observers tend to interpret them ...

Quantification of muscle protein synthesis (MPS) remains a cornerstone to understanding the control of muscle mass. Traditional (13)C-amino-acid tracer methodologies necessitate sustained bed-rest and intravenous cannulation(s), restricting studies to ~12h, and thus cannot holistically inform on diurnal MPS. This limits insight into the regulation of habitual muscle metabolism in health, ...
