It has been well established that with aging, walking becomes more challenging when dividing attention towards other tasks (i.e. dual-tasks) and when adapting walking to environmental demands. Although these gait-related features are believed to contribute to an increased risk of falling in older adults, little is known about the interplay between dual-tasking and gait adaptation.

Understanding gait adaptation is essential for rehabilitation, and visual feedback can be used during gait rehabilitation to develop effective gait training. We have previously shown that subjects can...
Adaptation to split-belt treadmill walking differs between individual stroke survivors. Many discussions only address spatiotemporal parameters that are related to movement, and the changes in interli...
Prolonged exposure to an emotional face biases our judgement of subsequent face stimulus toward the opposite emotion. This emotion aftereffect has been suggested to occur as early as 35ms exposure dur...
Chronic diseases and functional limitations may have serious and persistent consequences for one's quality of life (QoL). Over time, however, their negative impact on QoL may diminish because of adapt...
Growing evidence suggests that the reliance on cognitive control processes during normal walking increases as the locomotor task gets more complex and challenging. The aims of the present study were t...
Freezing of Gait (FOG) is a disabling symptom common in advanced Parkinson's Disease. FOG is an independent contributor to fall risk and is only partially relieved by medication. Parkinson...
The purpose of this study is to determine the utility of a performance measure for the dual-task of gait and considering people with multiple sclerosis have both cognitive and motor proble...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that the adaptation to the Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) at home is not worse when compared with an adaptation performed in inpatient settings.
The concurrent performance of two tasks, i.e., dual tasking (DT), is a common and ubiquitous every day phenomena. For example, people frequently walk while talking on a cellphone or drive ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the effects of Ginkgo Biloba Extract (GBE) in executive function-impaired Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) patients by assessing gait while walking alon...
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.
Adjustment of the eyes under conditions of low light. The sensitivity of the eye to light is increased during dark adaptation.
The degree of approximation or fit of filling material or dental prosthetic to the tooth surface. A close marginal adaptation and seal at the interface is important for successful dental restorations.
