Effect of a high intensity quadriceps fatigue protocol on knee joint mechanics and muscle activation during gait in young adults.
The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of impaired quadriceps function on knee joint biomechanics and neuromuscular function during gait. Surface electromyograms, three-dimensional motion and ground reaction ...
Asymptomatic and symptomatic individuals with the same radiographic evidence of knee osteoarthritis walk with different knee moments and muscle activity
There is an established discordance between the structural joint damage and clinical symptoms of knee osteoarthritis; however, there has been little investigation into the differences in joint level biomechanics and muscle ...
Spatial Interactions between Successive Eye and Arm Movements: Signal Type Matters
No abstract available.
Knee joint biomechanics and neuromuscular control during gait before and after total knee arthroplasty are sex-specific.
The future of total knee arthroplasty (TKA) surgery will involve planning that incorporates more patient-specific characteristics. Despite known biological, morphological, and functional differences between men and women, ...
Trunk neuromuscular pattern alterations during a controlled functional task in a low back injured group deemed ready to resume regular activities.
(IOS Press, 2014)
BACKGROUND: Trunk neuromuscular alterations have been found in those with chronic low back pain, but less well studied are whether responses are altered in those deemed recovered following an injury. Furthermore, coordinated ...
Obesity is associated with higher absolute tibiofemoral contact and muscle forces during gait with and without knee osteoarthritis
Background Obesity is an important risk factor for knee osteoarthritis initiation and progression. However, it is unclear how obesity may directly affect the mechanical loading environment of the knee joint, initiating ...
State-related changes in MEG functional connectivity reveal the task-positive sensorimotor network
Functional connectivity measures applied to magnetoencephalography (MEG) data have the capacity to elucidate neuronal networks. However, the task-related modulation of these measures is essential to identifying the functional ...

Activation amplitude and temporal synchrony among back extensor and abdominal muscles during a controlled transfer task: comparison of men and women
Muscle synergies are important for spinal stability, but few studies examine temporal responses of spinal muscles to dynamic perturbations. This study examined activation amplitudes and temporal synergies among compartments ...
