- Meta review of systematic and meta analytic reviews on movement differences, effect of movement based interventions, and the underlying neural mechanisms in autism spectrum disorderMotohide Miyahara
Movement Development Clinic, School of Physical Education, University of Otago Dunedin, New Zealand
Front Integr Neurosci 7:16. 2013..The effects of movement based interventions on the present ASD core symptoms need to be further validated by stronger evidence and verified theoretical mechanisms linking ASD with movement disorders...
- From gestures to words: spontaneous verbal labeling of complex sequential hand movements reduces fMRI activation of the imitation-related regionsMotohide Miyahara
Division of Cerebral Integration, National Institute for Physiological Sciences, Okazaki, Japan School of Physical Education, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
Neurosci Res 75:228-38. 2013..Verbal labeling seems to serve as an efficient heuristic that reduces the cost of cortical activation in the imitation-related regions...
- Functional connectivity between amygdala and facial regions involved in recognition of facial threatMotohide Miyahara
Department of Cerebral Research, Division of Cerebral Integration, National Institute for Physiological Sciences, Okazaki, Japan
Soc Cogn Affect Neurosci 8:181-9. 2013..We have demonstrated that the functional connectivity is modulated by vigilance for threatening facial features...
- Aging influences on working memory for hand movements: a test of the metamemory deficit hypothesisMotohide Miyahara

- Reaction time of facial affect recognition in Asperger's disorder for cartoon and real, static and moving facesMotohide Miyahara
Movement Development Clinic, School of Physical Education, University of Otago, PO Box 56, Dunedin, New Zealand
Child Psychiatry Hum Dev 38:121-34. 2007..Findings also revealed that the absence of happy face advantage was more prevalent in individuals with Asperger's disorder...
- Effect of postural instability on drawing errors in children: a synchronized kinematic analysis of hand drawing and body motionMotohide Miyahara
School of Physical Education, University of Otago, P O Box 56, Dunedin, New Zealand
Hum Mov Sci 27:705-13. 2008..The results indicated that inaccurate drawing was a result of postural instability rather than fidgeting caused by inattention or hyperactivity/impulsivity...
- Effects on memory of verbal labeling for hand movements in persons with Alzheimer's diseaseMotohide Miyahara
Movement Development Clinic, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
Am J Alzheimers Dis Other Demen 18:349-52. 2003..Of these 12, four were able to retain the strategy. There was a significant correlation only between the movement memory span and the MMSE. Meta-memory of VL seems independent of visuospatial memory and cognitive status...
- Accuracy of drawing in a dual-task and resistance-to-distraction study: motor or attention deficit?Motohide Miyahara
School of Physical Education, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
Hum Mov Sci 25:100-9. 2006..We concluded that inaccurate drawing is not caused by attention deficit, but that it is a manifestation of a motor deficit as a separate entity from attention deficit...
- Multiple birth versus neonatal brain lesions in children born prematurely as predictors of perceptuo-motor impairment at age 6Motohide Miyahara
University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
Dev Neuropsychol 24:435-59. 2003..Lesions, supplemented by gestational age, were highly predictive of outcome on the selected measures. In contrast, the multiple birth factor was of no predictive utility...
