  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. Modelling driver steering and neuromuscular behaviour

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    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.

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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Therese Ljunghammar Ekberg; Gustaf Gredebäck; Claes von Hofsten; Jeffrey J. Lockman; [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

  5. 5. Development of functional asymmetries in young infants A sensory-motor approach

    University dissertation from Umeå : institutionen för psykologi, Umeå universitet

    Author : Erik Domellöf; Louise Rönnqvist; Jacqueline Fagard; [2006]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Laterality; development; handedness; human infant; stepping response; placing response; head turning; arm movement; reaching; kinematic parameters; intralimb coordination; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi;

    Abstract : Human functional laterality, typically involving a right-sided preference in most sensory-motor activities, is still a poorly understood issue. This is perhaps particularly true in terms of what underlying mechanisms that may govern lateral biases, as well as the developmental origins and course of events. READ MORE
