Identifying athletes at an increased risk of injury is a promising approach to improve the effect of injury prevention interventions; however, it requires first identifying the potential athlete-specific risk factors. Cognitive ability was recently shown to correlate with noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injury rates and lower extremity mechanics, marking an underexplored area. A better understanding of how individuals' cognitive ability is associated with neuromuscular control during sport-specific tasks may improve injury prevention.

Popularity of using handheld devices in clinical settings has increased, especially the use of motion analysis applications (MAA). Video-based measurement tools have been found reliable in measuring k...
The ability to update spatial memories is important for everyday situations, such as remembering where we left our keys or parked our car. Although rodent studies have suggested that old age might imp...
"Dynamic knee valgus" - Are we measuring what we think we're measuring? An evaluation of static and functional knee calibration methods for application in gait and clinical screening tests of the overhead squat and hurdle step.
"Dynamic knee valgus" has been identified as a risk factor for significant knee injuries, however, the limits and sources of error associated with existing 3D motion analysis methods have not been wel...
Visual attention, visual working memory, and gaze control are basic functions that all select a subset of visual input to guide immediate or subsequent behavior. In this review, we focus on the relati...
The material-specific model for memory impairment predicts that verbal memory deficits are seen with left temporal seizures, and visual memory deficits are seen with right temporal seizures (Henkin et...
Pitch perception and memory are central in auditory cognition, in particular for sound source segregation and recognition, speech prosody and music processing. Here the investigator assess...

Purpose: Stroke is a common cause of death and disability in Canada. Injury to the right hemisphere of the brain and the parietal cortex in particular, is common and results in a disorder ...
Memory deficits after brain damage are common and there is still a need for evaluated therapy methods. In this study we compare two therapeutic interventions and investigate whether therap...

Memory related to spatial information.
Integration of spatial information perceived by visual and/or auditory CUES.
Methods used to take into account and incorporate spatial autocorrelation and regional variation into regression analysis models of data that has spatial dependency, and also to provide information on the spatial relationships among the variables.
Measures of spatial cognition and memory.
A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.
A joint is where two or more bones come together, like the knee, hip, elbow, or shoulder. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or diseases, including Arthritis - inflammation of a joint causes pain, stiffness, and swelling with ...
