Task performance is inversely related to spatial external focus target removal 2019 231 External focus (EF) of attention (focusing on the effects of movement on the environment and/or on an external target) has shown to enhance performance in motor tasks. These findings are consistent in the literature, however, there is limited literat...
Heart rate variability as an assessment of fall risk in older adults 2022 69 Falls in the older adult population are a critical public health concern, resulting in significant personal and societal financial burden, and reduced independence and quality of life. Early identification of elevated fall risk is vital for implement...
Attentional focus and balance control using electroencephalography 2022 85 Attentional focus is the direction of attention during a specific task which can be divided into an external focus of attention (EFA) and an internal focus of attention (IFA). An external focus has been found to be more effective in motor learning an...
The effects of physical activity throughout a 12-week balance intervention program in older adults with fall-risk 2020 129 Falls are a major public health concern, especially for older adults. The rate of older adult falls is expected to increase over the next decade. One of the main factors that contributes to falls is a decline in balance. Maintaining balance is import...
Attention and motor learning in an aiming task 2020 578 Using external focus (EXF) to direct attention externally toward the effect of movements on the environment leads to superior learning and performance compared to directing attention internally to body movements (internal focus, INF). However, the re...
Altering gait symmetry using an asymmetric visual cue 2023 33 Gait asymmetries are a common problem for clinical populations—such as stroke survivors and people with Parkinson’s disease—and are associated with increased gait instability and fall risk. Current methods to alter gait asymmetries rely heavily on sp...
