Summary of "The effects of practice schedules on the process of motor adaptation."

Walking is a well-practiced skill but requires adapting steps online to meet external constraints. The objective of this study was to examine the effects of types of practice schedules (i.e., blocked versus random practice) on the process of adapting and generalizing motor actions.

Cultural translation and adaptation of the Alberta Infant Motor Scale Thai version.

The Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS) is a widely used screening tool used to measure gross-motor maturation for clinical and research usage in various countries. A cross-cultural translation and adap...

The impact of motor impairment on the processing of sensory information.

Sensorimotor adaptation is driven by mismatch errors between desired movements and actual movement outcomes. A mismatch error can be minimized by adjusting movements or by altering the interpretation ...

Individualized Challenge Point Practice as a Method to Aid Motor Sequence Learning.

We conducted two studies to investigate if and how: (1) the rate of skill acquisition was related to motor performance at retention of a serial RT task (Study 1); and (2) whether rate of skill acquisi...

Implicit and explicit learning in reactive and voluntary saccade adaptation.

Saccades can either be elicited automatically by salient peripheral stimuli or can additionally depend on explicit cognitive goals. Similarly, it is thought that motor adaptation is driven by the comb...

Both Fast and Slow Learning Processes Contribute to Savings Following Sensorimotor Adaptation.

Recent work suggests that the rate of learning in sensorimotor adaptation is likely not fixed, but rather can change based on previous experience. One example is savings, a commonly observed phenomeno...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Determination of economic value of an established health care provider practice including value of patient lists, equipment, and other assets, and process of buying or selling rights to said practice.

Process of using a rotating machine to generate centrifugal force to separate substances of different densities, remove moisture, or simulate gravitational effects. It employs a large motor-driven apparatus with a long arm, at the end of which human and animal subjects, biological specimens, or equipment can be revolved and rotated at various speeds to study gravitational effects. (From Websters, 10th ed; McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

The adjustment of the eye to variations in the intensity of light. Light adaptation is the adjustment of the eye when the light threshold is increased; DARK ADAPTATION when the light is greatly reduced. (From Cline et al., Dictionary of Visual Science, 4th ed)

The caring for individuals in institutions and their adaptation to routines characteristic of the institutional environment, and/or their loss of adaptation to life outside the institution.

Changes in biological features that help an organism cope with its ENVIRONMENT. These changes include physiological (ADAPTATION, PHYSIOLOGICAL), phenotypic and genetic changes.
