Discretization of the rod: a chain of rigid links

This mathematical discretization
has a nice physical interpretation
in terms of the segmented spinal
cords of eels and lampreys.

We compute discrete
stiffnesses and curvatures:
Discretization: muscle properties
In the continuum (small h) limit the stiffness and curvature are:

The dependence on material properties and body geometry is revealed.

Stiffness and curvature are now defined in terms
of body geomety, elastic properties and activation.
To complete the model we need to know what the
muscle forces are.
Neural activation and swimming in lamprey
From Fish and Wildlife.
The central pattern generator (CPG) of lamprey is a series of ipsi- and contralaterally
coupled neural oscillators distributed along the spinal notocord. In “fictive swimming”
in vitro, contralateral motoneurons burst in antiphase and there is a phase lag along
the cord from head to tail corresponding to about one full wavelength, at the typical 12 Hz burst frequency. This has been modeled as a chain of Kuramoto type coupled
rotators. The model can be justified by phase response and averaging theory:

CD ≈ h - w i

At each joint model the force on either side by muscle forces.
fR,L depends on:
(1) activation (calcium release, etc.) - traveling wave for now (CPG model?)
(2) length of muscle: h ± w i
(3) speed of muscle extension/contraction: ± w di/dt
A model of force development in lamprey
muscle
Williams, Bowtell and Curtin (*) developed a model for muscle forces based on a
simple kinetic model, using data obtained from isometric and ramp experiments.
The goal of this study was to construct a model of muscle tension development
which can reasonably predict the time course of muscle tension developed when
muscle is stimulated at different phases during sinusoidal movement, as occurs
during swimming.
The motivation for this study was to develop a model with adequate accuracy for
inclusion in a full neuromechanical model of the swimming lamprey.

Muscle model chemical
constituents:
Output
of CPG
c: calcium ions
s: calcium-binding sites in
the sarcoplasmic
reticulum
f: calcium-binding sites in
the protein filaments
Mass action equations
d[c]/dt = k1[cs] - k2[c][s] - k3[c][f]
d[cf]/dt = k3[c][f] - k4[cf][f]
d[cs]/dt = -k1[cs] + k2[c][s]
d[f]/dt = -k3[c][f] + k4[cf][f]
d[s]/dt = k1[cs] - k2[c][s]
While the stimulus is on, k2=0.
While the stimulus is off, k1=0.
Reduced chemical kinetic equations
Constraints
[cs] + [c] + [cf] = CT
total # of calcium ions per litre is constant
[cs] + [s] = ST
total # of SR binding sites per litre is constant
[cf] + [f] = FT
total # of filament binding sites per litre is constant
5 equations in 5 variables plus 3 constraints
Variables: [c], [cf]
2 equations in 2 variables
Parameters: k1-k5, C, S, F
k1*(CT-[c]-[cf])
Stimulus on
k2[c](CT-ST-[c]-[cf])
Stimulus off
d[c]/dt = (k4*[cf]-k3[c])(FT-[cf]) +
d[cf]/dt = (k4*[cf]-k3[c])(FT-[cf])
Scaled Chemical Equations
All concentration variables and parameters are made nondimensionable by dividing by FT:
FT/FT = 1
CT/FT = C
C=2
Twice as much calcium is available
than needed to bind all the filaments.
ST/FT = S
[cf]/FT = Caf
thus Caf ≤ 1
[c]/FT = Ca
and Ca ≤ C
S=6
Thrice as many binding sites are
available in the SR than is required to bind all the
calcium.
k1*(C-Ca-Caf)
Stimulus on
dCa/dt = (k4*Caf-k3*Ca)(1-Caf) +
k2*Ca*(C-S-Ca-Caf) Stimulus off
dCaf/dt = (k4*Caf-k3*Ca)(1-Caf)
Mechanical model of muscle (A.V. Hill, 1938)

LC
L
L = L C + LS
TC = PC (Caf, LC, VC)
TS = μS * (LS - LS0) = PC
T P = μP * L
T = P C + TP
PC = T - TP
μP
LC(t) = L(t) - LS0 - PC(t)/μS
VC(t) = V(t) - (dPC/dt)/μS
Muscle properties
length-tension: force generated depends on muscle
length.
Investigate using isometric experiments.
force-velocity: force generated depends on speed of
lengthening or shortening of muscle.
Investigate using ramp experiments.
level of activation: force generated depends on the
number of muscle fibers activated and the frequency of that
activation.
Investigate by electrically stimulating muscle directly.
Basic assumptions of muscle model
1. The force developed is proportional to the number of calcium-activated
filaments.
2. Both the length-dependence and the velocity-dependence can be
described by independent multiplicative factors.
Pc = Pmax * Caf * λ(Lc) *

α (vc) = 1 +
Model equations
k1*(C-Ca-Caf)
Stimulus on
dCa/dt = (k4*Caf-k3*Ca)(1-Caf) +
k2*Ca*(C-S-Ca-Caf) Stimulus off
dCaf/dt = (k4*Caf-k3*Ca)(1-Caf)
Lc(t) = L(t) - LS0 - PC(t)/μS
Vc(t) = V(t) - (dPC/dt)/μS
PC = Pmax * Caf * λ(LC) * α (VC)
dP/dt = k5 * (PC - P)
necessary for fitting to data

Moment Dependence
Now we have that the moment depends on:
•Activation
•Curvature
•Rate of change of curvature
Depends on activation and state of the rod.
Swimming
Equal activations on both sides produces “straight” line swimming
QuickTime™ and a
decompressor
are needed to see this picture.
Swimming: Turns
Unequal activations on the sides produces turns.
QuickTime™ and a
decompressor
are needed to see this picture.

It’s qualitatively correct.
Comparison of effects
What’s happening
Summary
• Muscle model connected to rod “works”: it swims!
• Captures qualitatively the correct behavior (phase lags, shapes, etc.)
• Model allows flexibility to explore various effects
Future work
•More realistic fluid dynamics model (Navier-Stokes) & fluid-rod interaction
(Immersed Boundary Method)
•Better muscle model: Need effects of feedback and memory to get correct
isometric and dynamic behavior. Connect to proprioceptive and exteroceptive
sensing.
•Connect models of CPG, motoneurons, muscle force interaction, fluid dynamics
. . . “neurons to movement”
