The Role of the Dorsal Premotor and Superior Parietal Cortices in Decoupled Visuomotor Transformations
In order to successfully interact with objects located within our environment, the brain must be capable of combining visual information with the appropriate felt limb position (i.e. proprioception) in order compute an ...
Cognitive-Motor Integration In Normal Aging And Preclinical Alzheimer's Disease: Neural Correlates And Early Detection
The objectives of the studies included in this dissertation were to characterize how the ability to integrate cognition into action is disrupted by both normal and pathological aging, to evaluate the effectiveness of ...
Sex-Differences in the Early Detection of Dementia Risk Using a Cognitive-motor Integration Task
Cognitive-motor integration (CMI) involves concurrent thought and action which requires the interaction of large brain networks. Our research objectives were to examine the effect that dementia risk has on the ability to ...
Behavioural Effects of Concussion History and their Underlying Neural Mechanisms in Elite and Non-Elite Athletes
Purpose: Rule-based visually guided movements, in which cognitive-motor integration is required, are essential for tasks in our daily lives and in sport performance. The frontoparietal-cerebellar network is essential for ...
Tracking Functional Recovery Following Concussion Using Cognitive-Motor Integration
This research examines cognitivemotor integration (CMI) (thinking and moving) during eyehand coordination, a skill commonly required in sport. This study examines CMI in varsity athletes during their returntosport protocol ...
The Feasibility of Cognitive-Motor Integration Training in Adults With Dementia
Living our daily lives often requires us to think and move at the same time, and require cognitive-motor integration (CMI). Previous studies have shown that these CMI tasks are impaired in dementia and in asymptomatic ...
