Abstract: F22.00008 : Ontogeny and scaling of burst-and-coast swimming in zebrafish
9:31 AM–9:44 AM
This work is an attempt to characterize these sequences using several archetypal
model experiments and models gathering hydrodynamics, statistics and behavioral sciences.
We will focus on new results obtained from real fish experiments in free swimming and forced gait configurations (using a controlled swimming channel). We will show how the statistics of
these S2D sequences evolve with the conditions of the experiment; the important parameters
being here the external flow conditions and the size of the habitat, but also the species and
the maturity state of the fish (larva, juvenile or adult). We believe that these results will have
direct implications on the design and implementation of biomimetic robotic systems.
