Evolution of the runner's high

We compared endocannabinoid signaling in cursorial and non-cursorial mammals and showed that exercie-induced neurobiological rewards may be related to humans' evolutionary history as aerobic athletes.

Energy costs of chimpanzee locomotion and evolution of bipedalism

We compared the energy costs of chimpanzees walking bipedally and quadrupedally and showed that human bipedalism is ~75% less expensive than walking like an ape.
