  1. 1. Neural Control of Movement Motor Neuron Subtypes, Proprioception and Recurrent Inhibition

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Anders Enjin; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    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

  2. 2. Effects of repetitive work on proprioception and of stretching on sensory mechanisms implications for work-related neuromuscular disorders

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Martin Björklund; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2004]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Repetitive motions; Muscle fatigue; Proprioception; Muscle stretching; Workrelated musculoskeletal disorders; Nociception; Ergonomics; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; medicin; Medicine; Medicine; Work-related musculoskeletal disorders; Medicin;

    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. READ MORE

  3. 3. 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; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : Experimental muscle pain; Hypertonic saline; Kinesthesia; Proprioception; Movernent; Vibration; Muscle fatigue; Brain; Imaging; Positron emission tornography; Regional cerebral blood - flow; Movement; Positron emission tomography; 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

  4. 4. Perception and control of upper limb movement: Insights gained by analysis of sensory and motor variability

    University dissertation from Umeå : Kirurgisk och perioperativ vetenskap

    Author : Dmitry Domkin; Högskolan i Gävle.; Umeå universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; proprioception; kinaesthesia; position sense; movement sense; position-matching; velocity-discrimination; correlation; uncontrolled manifold; variability; synergy; upper limb; motor control; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin; medicin; Medicine; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : Chronic neck-shoulder pain is associated with impairments of proprioception and motor control. Thus, assessment of proprioceptive and motor function may be powerful tools both for research and clinical practice. READ MORE

  5. 5. Postural Control in Single-limb Stance. In Individuals with Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury and Uninjured Controls

    University dissertation from Eva Ageberg, Department of Physical Therapy, Lund University, Lasarettsgatan 7, SE-221 85 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Eva Ageberg; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; revalidation; kinesitherapy; Physical medicine; reproducibility of results; proprioception; rehabilitation; stabilometry; Knee joint; postural control; anterior cruciate ligament; Rehabilitering medicinsk och social ;

    Abstract : The overall aims of this work were to evaluate a method of assessing postural control, measured by balance in single-limb stance on a force platform, and to study balance in single-limb stance in individuals with non-operated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury in comparison with that of uninjured controls. Ninety-nine patients (99) with ACL injury and 141 uninjured subjects were included in the studies. READ MORE
