Developmental communalities of homologous and non‐homologous body joints Journal Article uri icon



  • AbstractReducing 4970 center‐ and sex‐specific correlations for age at appearance of postnatal ossification centers to 15 mean values of r representing homologous and non‐hmologous inter‐limb and intra‐limb joint segment communalities, it was shown that homologous joint segments in different limbs (hand‐foot, elbow‐knee, shoulder‐hip) showed systematically higher developmental communality than intra‐limb non‐homologous joints, and these in turn exceeded mean r values for inter‐limb non‐homologous joint segments.
