  1. 1. Sensorimotor behavior in children born preterm and adolescents with Cerebral Palsy Side preference, movement organization, and training

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Anna-Maria Johansson; Umeå universitet.; [2012]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; prematurity; preterm; children; cerebral palsy; movement organization; movement performance; goal-directed; laterality; handedness; intelligence; cognition; synchronized metronome training; intervention; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Preterm birth (< 37 complete gestation weeks, GWs) is the single most prominent risk factor for the development of cerebral palsy (CP). This is due to the immature physiological state of the preterm born infant which increases the risk of brain lesions. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Passage to Organization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Företagsekonomiska institutionen

    Author : Mikael Holmgren Caicedo; Stockholms universitet.; [2005]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; concatenation; instantiation; metaphor; metonymy; mimêsis; mûthos; organization; organizing; poetics; rhetoric; representation; SOCIAL SCIENCES Business and economics Business studies; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Ekonomi Företagsekonomi;

    Abstract : How does action turn [into a] substantive and, if it does, how does it turn into action again to perdure or even change?In this endeavor I set out to study organizing and organization by asking myself how organizing becomes a product called organization and how that product turns into the very organizing whence it once was spawned. In other words, I set out to study what I denominate the movements between organizing and organization. READ MORE

  3. 3. Effect of timing training in golf and soccer players skill, movement organization, and brain activity

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Marius Sommer; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Motor timing; rhythmicity; timing training; golf shot; golf swing; kinematics; precision; variability; coordination; movement dynamics; soccer; fMRI; mirror neurons; action observation; cerebellum; perception - action.; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : Background Although trainers and athletes consider ‘good timing skills’ to be critical for optimal sport performance, little is known in regard to how sport-specific skills may benefit from timing training. Thus, assuming that all motor performances are mediated by an internal timing mechanism, enhanced motor timing is expected to have positive effects on both planning and execution of movement performance, and consequently on complex sports actions as golf or soccer.

  4. 4. Bimanual movement control insights from golf ball striking

    University dissertation from Karolinska institutet

    Author : Fredrik Tinmark; GIH. Gymnastik- och idrottshögskolan; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicin Teknik; Medicine Technology;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to gain insight into the control of complex bimanual movements that are both fast and accurate. For this, skilled golf ball striking was used as a model in two experimental studies (I and III). READ MORE

  5. 5. Neuronal Networks of Movement Slc10a4 as a Modulator & Dmrt3 as a Gait-keeper

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Martin Larhammar; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Synaptic vesicle transporter; Neuromodulation; Dopamine; Central Pattern Generator; Locomotion; Gait; Horse; Mouse; Commissural Inhibitory Interneuron; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Nerve cells are organized into complex networks that comprise the building blocks of our nervous system. Neurons communicate by transmitting messenger molecules released from synaptic vesicles. Alterations in neuronal circuitry and synaptic signaling contribute to a wide range of neurological conditions, often with consequences for movement. READ MORE
