The effects of low-intensity cycling on cognitive performance following sleep deprivation 2017 91 This study examined the effect of 24 h of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance and assessed the effect of acute exercise on cognitive performance following sleep deprivation. Young, active, healthy adults (n = 24, 14 males) were randomized to c...
An external focus of attention is effective for balance control when sleep-deprived 2018 78 The purpose of our study was to examine if the beneficial effects of an external focus are effective for balance control when sleep-deprived. Sleep-deprived participants (27 hours awake) completed three blocks of five separate 30 second trials on a d...
The influence of attentional focus on balance control over seven days of training 2018 259 This study examined the training effect of attentional focus (external focus, internal focus, or no focus instructions) on a dynamic balance task. Participants completed baseline balance testing, seven consecutive days of dynamic balance board traini...
Interpretation of postural control may change due to data processing techniques 2015 134 Postural control is commonly assessed by quantifying center of pressure (CoP) variability during quiet stance. CoP data is traditionally filtered prior to analysis. However, some researchers suggest filtering may lead to undesirable consequences. Fur...
Obstacle crossing in a virtual environment transfers to a real environment 2018 137 Obstacle crossing, such as stepping over a curb, becomes more challenging with natural aging and could lead to obstacle-related trips and falls. To reduce fall-risk, obstacle training programs using physical obstacles have been developed, but come wi...
Postural control entropy is increased when adopting an external focus of attention 2019 156 Falls in older adults are a public health challenge due to their influence on well-being and health-care costs. One way to address this challenge is to discover new methods to enhance postural control in older adults so they are better prepared to ma...
