    We have recently shown that actions with similar kinematic requirements but different end-state goals may be supported by distinct neural networks. Specifically, we demonstrated that when right-handed individuals reach-to-grasp ...
  • Wasik, Jacek; Shan, Gongbing (Archives of BudoArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology & Physical EducationJan Długosz University of CzestochowaUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    Background: Taekwon-do is famous for its powerful kicking techniques and the axe kick is the challenging one, aiming at kicking high section of an opponent. The relevance of the skill in the traditional version of ...
  • Bartoshyk, Patrick J.; De Bruin, Natalie; Brown, Lesley A.; Doan, Jon B. (Lippincott, Williams, & WilkinsArts and ScienceDepartment of KinesiologyUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    Background: While traditional neurotherapy promotes motor function in people living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), the benefits may be limited by compounding physical, cognitive, and attentional barriers. Since the ...

    We reach for and grasp different sized objects numerous times per day. Most of these movements are visually-guided, but some are guided by the sense of touch (i.e. haptically-guided), such as reaching for your keys in a ...
  • Gonzalez, Claudia L. R.; Flindall, Jason W.; Stone, Kayla D. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical EducationUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    In the present study we investigate age-related changes in hand preference for grasping and the influence of task demands on such preference. Children (2–11), young-adults (17–28) and older-adults (57–90 ) were examined ...
