  1. 1. Mobility, Sitting Posture and Reaching Movements in Children with Myelomeningocele

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Simone Norrlin; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pediatrics; myelomeningocele; PEDI; mobility; sitting posture; reaching; motor adaptation; Pediatrik; MEDICINE Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine Internal medicine Paediatric medicine; MEDICIN Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin Invärtesmedicin Pediatrisk medicin; pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : Children with myelomeningocele (MMC) usually have problems with daily life activities, but the background to their problems is not altogether obvious. An understanding of the possible causes of activity problems is a prerequisite for the effectiveness of physical therapy. READ MORE

  2. 2. Programming and updaing of reaching movements

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Sergei Perfiliev; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Reaching movements; motor cortex; central command; neuronal recording; trajectory updating; descending pathways; spinal cord lesions;

    Abstract : Neuronal activity in the motor cortex (area 4) was recorded during reaching movements in cats, trained to perform target-reaching in response to a tone burst. Out of 350 task related neurones 12% generated short latency (20?110 ms) sensory responses to the cue triggering the reaching movement. READ MORE

  3. 3. Reaching at Sustainable Development Lean in the Public Sector

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Pernilla Lindskog; KTH.; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Healthcare; participation; ownership; learning; clarity; Teknik och hälsa; Technology and Health;

    Abstract : The concept of sustainable development is commonly used worldwide. In the public sector, characterized by a rationalization focus, conclusions about the sustainability of lean production (lean), as a management concept for organizational change, are contradictory. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling driver steering and neuromuscular behaviour

    University dissertation from KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Ola Benderius; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; reaching; neuromuscular behaviours; lateral control; driver models; Driver behaviours; active safety; autonomous vehicles;

    Abstract : This thesis challenges the traditional view of treating steering behaviour as a tracking task, instead treating it as a reaching task. Here, reaching refers to a fundamental human behaviour with the the intriguing characteristic of having a linear relationship between maximum speed and distance, effectively making the movement time constant.

  5. 5. Manual Motor Development in Infancy Execution and Observation of Actions

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Therese Ljunghammar Ekberg; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Infancy; Motor development; Reaching; Actions; Motor prediction; Prospective motor control; Social cognition; Stereopsis; Mirror neuron system; Mu rhythm; Motor impairment; Autism Spectrum Disorder; High-risk siblings; Psychology; Psykologi;

    Abstract : Of all motor skills, manual reaching might be the one ability that matters most for infants’ perceptual, cognitive and social development. Reaching allows infants to learn about object properties, but also gives opportunities for socializing with others. READ MORE
