    Collapse Overview
    Addison Kemp is a functional morphologist and biological anthropologist studying the evolution of the visual and vestibular systems in mammals. Experimental work in the lab provides insight into how sensory adaptations impact performance in critical behaviors including foraging, predation and locomotion. Current experiments aim to understand the importance of early primate visual adaptations through work with tree shrews, species which are ecologically and morphologically similar to some of the earliest fossil primates. Related comparative morphological analyses use micro-CT data from both extant museum specimens and fossils to understand how mammalian sensory morphology has changed in relation to evolutionary shifts in ecological factors such as habitat, diet, activity pattern, and locomotor mode.

    Dr. Kemp received her PhD from the University of Texas at Austin, taught anatomy as a postdoctoral associate at Duke University School of Medicine and now teaches gross anatomy to first- and second- year medical students at KSOM. She is a Research Associate in Mammalogy at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
