  2. 2. Multisensory control of gaze stabilization : from brainstem to bedside

    Author : Tobias Wibble; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Without the continuous updates provided by the vestibular and visual systems, our world would appear blurry and unstable. In order to allow the retina to reliably record incoming light in a meaningful way, the vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) and optokinetic reflex (OKR) aim to stabilize our gaze on visual features.

  3. 3. Human Postural Sway Modeling and Balance Impairment Detection

    Author : Hedyeh Jafari; Thomas Gustafsson; George Nikolakopoulos; Fredrik Öhberg; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Automatic Control; Reglerteknik;

    Abstract : Falls, Fear of falling (FoF), and low balance confidence pose significant threats to health and independence among older people. This thesis aims to study humans’ postural and balance mechanisms, from analyzing the effect of multisensory inputs on balance performance and balance-related concerns to modeling the postural sway through physical dynamics and data-driven approaches.
