  • Oregon State University Softball: Dynamic Visual Acuity Training for Improving Performance

    Madsen, Bruce; Blair, Kyle (2017)
    Sports vision training involves eye focusing and movement workouts that center on the visual tracking of objects. The purpose of sports vision training is to improve performance in various sports by improving visual responses and processing, such as by lowering reaction times. In 2015, the Athletic Eye Institute started a sports vision-training program study with the Oregon State University Softball Team in the hopes of increasing the dynamic visual skills of their players. There were two aim...

    Methodological issues with the assessment of voluntary activation using transcranial magnetic stimulation in the knee extensors

    Wrightson, James; Ansdell, Paul; Dekerle, Jeanne; Greenhouse-Tucknott, Aaron; Schäfer, Lisa (2018)
    The assessment of voluntary activation of the knee extensors using transcranial magnetic stimulation (VATMS) is routinely performed to assess the supraspinal function. Yet methodological scrutiny of the technique, whether used at rest or more crucially following exercise, is scarce. The aim of the present study was to examine face validity and reliability of VATMS and its two main determinants (superimposed twitch during a maximal voluntary contraction [SIT100%] and estimated resting twitch [...

    Differences in daily objective physical activity and sedentary time between women with self-reported fibromyalgia and controls: results from the Canadian Health Measures Survey

    Atoui, Sarah; Kingsbury, Célia; Bernard, Paquito; Hains-Monfette, Gabriel (2018)
    Introduction Physical activity and sedentary behaviors are important modifiable factors that influence health and quality of life in women with fibromyalgia. The purpose of this study was to compare objectively assessed physical activity and sedentary time in women self-reporting fibromyalgia with a control group. Method Data were drawn from the Canadian Health Measures Survey cycle 1, 2 and 3 conducted by Statistics Canada. We included women aged 18 to 79 years with complete accelerometer da...

    Effects of ipsilateral and contralateral fatigue and muscle occlusion on the complexity of knee extensor torque output in humans

    Burnley, Mark; Winter, Samantha; Pethick, Jamie (2018)
    To determine whether the fatigue-induced loss of torque complexity could be accounted for by central or peripheral factors, nine healthy participants performed four experimental trials involving intermittent isometric contractions of the knee extensors at 50% of the maximal voluntary contraction (MVC) torque. These trials involved: 1) two bouts of contractions to failure using the right leg separated by 3 min recovery (ISP); 2) the same protocol but with cuff occlusion during the 3-min recove...

    “Hey, look at me” An {auto}ethnographic account of experiencing ADHD symptoms within sport.

    Mills, John; Ing, Charles (2017)
    This auto-ethnography presents a reflective analysis of my experiences of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in sport. To date, research into ADHD has been largely confined to clinical evaluation and subjective interpretations. This, however, fails to advance cultural understandings and maintains the status quo. Using an autoethnographic approach, we aim to address this in-balance within sport and to give a voice to the voiceless. As an individual diagnosed with ADHD in early chi...
