  1. 1. Functional neuroimaging of dual task interference and divided attention

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Neuroscience

    Författare :Priyantha Herath; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Sammanfattning : It is known that human subjects cannot perform two reaction time (RT) tasks as efficiently as they would perform the constituent tasks individually. Increments of reaction times or error rates that occur when two RT tasks are performed nearly simultaneously is known as interference. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Physical Activity and Alzheimer's Disease Measurements, Observations and Subjective Experiences

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Ylva Cedervall; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Caregiver; continuity theory; dementia; dual-task; gait analysis; in-depth interview; mixed methods research; participant observation; physical capacity; qualitative; selfhood; walking; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi; Geriatrics; Geriatrik;

    Sammanfattning : Gait disturbances such as slow walking speed and step-to-step variability have been reported among people with mild Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and as risk factors for functional decline, dependency, and falls. Additionally, AD-related emotional reactions and decreased initiative can lead to physical inactivity. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Experimental studies of human-computer interaction : working memory and mental workload in complex cognition

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : Department of Psychology

    Författare :Erik Wästlund; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Karlstads universitet.; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2007]
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Psykologi; Psychology; Information processing; Problem-solving; Working memory; ST-WM; LT-WM; Dual-task; Mental workload; Reading; Page layout; VDT; Convergent; Divergent;

    Sammanfattning : Complex cognition is readily described as cognitive tasks requiring the coordination of multiple steps of processing or tasks exceeding short term memory capacity. Similarly, mental workload may be described as the use and temporary expenditure of a finite amount of information processing capacity. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Assessment of balance control in relation to fall risk among older people

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Samhällsmedicin och rehabilitering

    Författare :Ellinor Nordin; Umeå universitet.; [2008]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; older people; falls; interactive gait; TUG; GUG; balance confidence; likelihood ratio; validity; reliability; risk factors; assessment; balance; gait; mobility; physical function; dual-task costs; step width; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences Physiotherapy; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    Sammanfattning : Falls and their consequences among older people are a serious medical and public health problem. Identifying individuals at risk of falling is therefore a major concern. LÄS MER
