    Sara Wilson; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..Vibration has been shown in the past to alter several measures of proprioception in the joints of the extremities...
    Lawrence Marks; Fiscal Year: 2004
    ..attention-the ability to attend to different parts of the body surface-appears to depend on inputs from proprioception (orientation of the head and eyes) and possibly vision; and in hearing, spatial attention may depend on visual ..
    BRADLEY VEATCH; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..Practical VC prehensors have long been desired for their natural and intuitive operation that promotes proprioception. However, engineering difficulties have prevented the realization of such designs...
  56. Sensory function and cortical activity in cerebral palsy
    JASON WINGERT; Fiscal Year: 2007
    ..We have assembled a battery of tests to quantify discriminative touch, vibratory sense, joint proprioception, and stereognosis...
  57. Sensory Re-Weighting and Re-Alignment: Cerebellar and Parietal Contributions
    HANNAH BLOCK; Fiscal Year: 2009
    ..Humans rely on multiple types of sensory information to localize targets for reaching, with vision and proprioception most heavily used. However, situations arise where one modality might be more useful than the other (e.g...
    Francis Clark; Fiscal Year: 1992
    ..In this study, which is part of an ongoing series of studies to investigate the neural mechanisms of proprioception, we seek to discover the neural substrate providing limb positron information and, ultimately , to determine ..
  59. Molecular Basis of Mechanoreception in Sensory Neurons
    David Julius; Fiscal Year: 2006
    ..Somatosensory mechanoreceptors mediate the senses of pain, touch and proprioception. The importance of these senses to human health is underscored by diseases that cause peripheral neuropathy, ..
    GARY PAIGE; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..audition (the exteroceptive senses) provide information about the position and motion of external elements, proprioception conveys the position of the body and its parts, and vestibular inputs track head motion and orientation...
    BRADLEY VEATCH; Fiscal Year: 2000
    ..VC prehensors have long been desired for their natural and intuitive operation, and their ability to promote proprioception. Unfortunately, engineering difficulties have prevented the creation of practical designs...
    Claude Ghez; Fiscal Year: 1999
    ..sin limb biomechanical properties are examined in three groups of subjects: normal controls, patients lacking proprioception (because of large-fiber sensory neuropathy), patients with localized cerebellar lesions...
  63. Motor Control Deficit in Low Back Pain: Cause or Effect?
    Jacek Cholewicki; Fiscal Year: 2003
    ..These additional variables will include: trunk position and motion proprioception, objective and subjective measures of physical function, diagnosis and duration of symptoms, and personal ..
