Jack Stern is Professor and Chair of Anatomical Sciences at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He began his career as a comparative primate anatomist and soon became interested in experimental methods for testing functional morphological hypotheses. Many of his publications deal with muscle function in nonhuman primates as revealed by telemetered electromyography. He has also collaborated on kinematic, kinetic, and bone strain studies. This paper, however, deals with his foray into the functional interpretation of fossil hominid postcrania. Dr. Stern is the author of Core Concepts in Anatomy, a review text in medical gross anatomy.
