New 3D imaging and visualization technique provides detailed views of muscle architecture

In a new study, scientists in pathology and anatomical sciences have revealed a three-dimensional view of the skeletal muscles responsible for flight in a European starling. The study will form the basis of future research on the bird’s wishbone, which is supported by these particular muscles and is hypothesized to bend during flight.
