- Specific instructions are important for continuous bimanual drumming in adults with Down syndromeShannon D Robertson Ringenbach
Department of Kinesiology, Motor Development Laboratory, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85287 0404, USA
Downs Syndr Res Pract 11:29-36. 2006..In general, for all groups spatial measures showed a performance advantage when using the visual metronome in continuous tasks but no advantage with any instructions for discrete tasks...
- Unimanual and bimanual continuous movements benefit from visual instructions in persons with Down syndromeShannon D R Ringenbach
Program of Kinesiology, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ 85287 0701, USA
J Mot Behav 44:233-9. 2012..These results suggest that visual instruction provides the best information for people with DS to aid in performance of many different types of movements...
- Persons with and without Down syndrome use similar strategies when using visual instructions for bimanual drummingS D Robertson Ringenbach
Department of Kinesiology, Arizona State University, Tempe, AZ, USA
J Intellect Disabil Res 51:953-61. 2007..Previous research suggested that persons with Down syndrome (DS) used a different strategy to drum than typical adults...
- Torso movement constraint in stability of bimanual coordinationShannon D Ringenbach
Department of Kinesiology, Arizona State University, P O Box 870404, Tempe, AZ 85287 0404, USA
Percept Mot Skills 107:231-45. 2008..This information may be important for performing and learning complex motor-coordination movements (e.g., playing musical instruments)...
- Auditory instructional cues benefit unimanual and bimanual drawing in Parkinson's disease patientsShannon D R Ringenbach
Program of Kinesiology, Arizona State University, P O Box 870701, Tempe, AZ 85287 0701, USA
Hum Mov Sci 30:770-82. 2011..The benefit of auditory cues may be related to the timing nature of the task or factors related to the auditory cues (e.g., reduced attentional demands, more kinesthetic focus)...
- The effects of attention and handedness on coordination dynamics in a bimanual Fitts' law taskEric L Amazeen
Department of Psychology, Arizona State University, Box 871104, Tempe, AZ, 85287 1104, USA
Exp Brain Res 164:484-99. 2005..The effects of attention, though, were mixed, which suggested that there was a combined effect of an attentional asymmetry and an asymmetry in the hands' uncoupled frequency, both of which are captured in the dynamical model...
- Perceptual-motor tasks in adults with Down syndromeSHANNON RINGENBACH; Fiscal Year: 2006..This information is critical in order to communicate effectively to people with DS in a way that reduces frustration and confusion for all involved. The methods for teaching people with DS could be radically improved by this research. ..
