The paper 'Different cadences and resistances in sub-maximal synchronous handcycling in able-bodied men: Effects on efficiency and force application' by Cassandra Kraaijenbrink, Riemer Vegter, Alexander Hensen, Heiko Wagner and Lucas van der Woude was published in PLOS ONE. This article is the first in the project on daily handcycling that takes place in collaboration with the University of Groningen.
A paper titled “Impairments in the Visual Processing of Global Biological Motion Cues in Down Syndrome” has been published in the journal Perception as part of a joint project between the OCC PhD students Hugh Riddell and José Walter Tolentino-Castro.
From the 2nd to the 5th of July, the 23th congress of the European Society of Biomechanics took place at the Higher Technical School of Engineering of the University of Sevilla. Cassandra Kraaijenbrink presented part of her work for her PhD in a flash presentation and a poster with the title Effects of resistance on 3D force application during low-intensity handcycling in healthy men.
An article titled Monosynaptic stretch reflex fails to explain the initial postural response to sudden lateral perturbations was accepted for publication in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. The article, written by Andreas Mühlbeier, Kim Joris Boström and Heiko Wagner from the Department of Movement Science as well as Christian Puta from the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena, gives a report of muscular activity following sudden external perturbations of the trunk.
Judith Mergen will be visiting the Deakin University in Melbourne from June 28th until August 8t, 2017 for a short research stay. Part of her tasks will be to assist in the analysis of a dataset that was collected as part of the project Engaging Teachers, motivating students: A cluster randomized trial to improve girls’ perceived motor competence.
