    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; motor neuron; proprioception; recurrent inhibition; molecular marker; Ia afferent; development; transgenic mice; Renshaw cell; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology Cell biology Neurobiology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi Cellbiologi Neurobiologi; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Movement is central for life, and all animals depend on accurate regulation of movement for purposeful behavior. There is great diversity of movements, ranging between simple and vital breathing movements to minute and subtle movements of the face used to communicate emotions. READ MORE

    Abstract : The aims of the thesis were (i) to investigate the impact of repetitive low-intensity work exposure on proprioception and (ii) to examine effects of muscle stretching (especially sensory effects and effects on muscle nociception) and to relate its application to the prevention, alleviation and/or treatment of work-related neuromuscular disorders.The effects of low-intensity repetitive work on the shoulder proprioception were tested in healthy subjects.

  3. 3. Effects of Repetitive Work on Proprioception and of Stretching on Sensory Mechanisms : Implications for Work-related Neuromuscular Disorders

    University dissertation from Arbetslivsinstitutets tryckeri, Umeå

    Author : Martin Björklund; [2004]
    Keywords : Repetitive motions; Muscle fatigue; Proprioception; Muscle stretching; Workrelated musculoskeletal disorders; Nociception; Ergonomics;

    Abstract : Repetitive low-intensïty work constitutes an important risk factor for Chronic Wark Related Neuromuscular Disorders (CWRND)· Derangemcnt of motor control, provoked by loaded or fati ued muscles, has been suggested as one of the underlying mechanisms behind these disorders. Faàgue-induced reduetion of proprioceptive acuity may be one of the factors accounting for the deranged motor eontrol. READ MORE

  4. 4. Brain processing of experimental muscle pain and its interrelation with proprioception and muscle fatigue : positron emission tomography study

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : A Korotkov; [2005]
    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movernent; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tornography; Regional cerebral blood - flow;

    Abstract : Chronic muscle pain is a significant medical and social problem and better understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved is an important requirernent for further development of diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation methods. Experimental imaging studies have investigated functional neuroanatomy of different pain cornponents. READ MORE
