- Effects of a secondary task on obstacle avoidance in healthy young adultsKa Chun Siu
HPER Biomechanics Laboratory, University of Nebraska at Omaha, Omaha, NE 68182, USA
Exp Brain Res 184:115-20. 2008..Our findings suggest the existence of a hierarchy of control within both postural task (obstacle avoidance requires the most information processing resources) and dual-task (with gait stability being a priority) conditions...
