  1. 1. Sensorimotor function in chronic neck pain objective assessments and a novel method for neck coordination exercise

    University dissertation from Umeå : Institutionen för samhällsmedicin och rehabilitering

    Author : Ulrik Röijezon; Mats Djupsjöbacka; Martin Björklund; Charlotte Häger-Ross; Dario Liebermann; Mikael Karlberg; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neck pain; Whiplash; Sensorimotor; Motor Control; Motor Learning; Neck Coordination Exercise; Postural Control; Cervical kinematics; Reliability.; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Community medicine; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Samhällsmedicin; rehabiliteringsmedicin; Rehabilitation Medicine;

    Abstract : Chronic neck pain is a widespread problem that causes individual suffering as well as large costs for the society. The knowledge about the pathophysiology is poor and therefore specific diagnosis and causal treatment are rare. READ MORE

  2. 2. Sensorimotor Robot Policy Training using Reinforcement Learning

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ali Ghadirzadeh; Mårten Björkman; Danica Kragic; Atsuto Maki; Ville Kyrki; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Reinforcement Learning; Artificial Intelligence; Robot Learning; Sensorimotor; Policy Training; Datalogi; Computer Science;

    Abstract : Robots are becoming more ubiquitous in our society and taking over many tasks that were previously considered as human hallmarks. Many of these tasks, e.g. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sensorimotor transformations during grasping movements

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Daniel Säfström; Benoni B. Edin; Melvyn A. Goodale; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; sensorimotor transformation; sensory integration; visuomotor map; human physiology; adaptation; grasping; sensory substitution; MEDICINE Physiology and pharmacology Physiology; MEDICIN Fysiologi och farmakologi Fysiologi;

    Abstract : ‘Sensorimotor transformations’ are processes whereby sensory information is used to generate motor commands. One example is the ‘visuomotor map’ that transforms visual information about objects to motor commands that activates various muscles during grasping movements. READ MORE

  4. 4. To grip and not to slip sensorimotor mechanisms in reactive control of grasp stability

    University dissertation from Umeå : Integrativ medicinsk biologi

    Author : Charlotte Häger Ross; Roland S. Johansson; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; human; hand; precision grip; grasp force; friction; cutaneous mechanoreceptors; sensorimotor integration; motor control;

    Abstract : The reactive control of fingertip forces maintaining grasp stability was examined in man during a prehensile task. Blindfolded subjects used the precision grip between the tips of index finger and thumb to restrain an object that was subjected to unpredictable load forces. These were delivered tangential to the parallel grip surfaces of the object. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cursed complexity. Computational properties of subcortical neuronal microcircuitry in sensorimotor control

    University dissertation from Neural basis for sensorimotor control

    Author : Anton Spanne; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; spike firing statistics; spontaneous activity; sensorimotor control; tactile processing; cuneate nucleus; sparse coding; spinal border cells; cerebellum;

    Abstract : One of the big obstacles for understanding the nervous system is its inherent complexity. It poses problems when interpreting both experimental and theoretical studies since we are currently forced to consider only reduced variants of the actual circuitry of the brain. READ MORE
