One of the main difficulties in the study of rodents comprises the training of the animals. In general, the process of training is carried out under periodic and strict supervision by researchers, which can expose animals to stressful situations and increase the time and cost in the development of the research. Within this research, we propose a sy...

The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between strength capacity and motor performance through machine learning model and linear regression in the gymnastic handstand. The hypothesis raised was a positive relationship between motor performance and strength capacity levels. Thirty-two university students, 16 of whom were fe...

Este estudo tem como objetivo investigar a associação entre o polimorfismo da COMT e a aquisição de uma tarefa de sequência motora. As hipóteses são de que (a) o alelo Met favorecerá a produção do padrão de movimento e o alelo Val favorecerá a parametrização do movimento; (b) os homozigotos Met buscarão predominantemente informações visuais relacio...

Differences in motor learning can be partially explained by differences in genotype. The catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) Val158Met polymorphism regulates the dopamine (DA) availability in the prefrontal cortex modulating motor performance and learning. Given the differences in tonic and phasic DA transmission, this study aimed to investigate wh...
Article
The benefits of less repetitive practice in motor learning have been explained by the increased demand for memory processes during the execution of motor skills. Recently, a new perspective associating increased demand for perception with less repetitive practice has also been proposed. Augmented information gathering and visual scanning characteri...

AIMS This study aimed to investigate the comparison between sex and manual aiming control in different cognitive and motor constraints of the task. METHODS Eighty-four right-handed participants (42 women) performed 110 trials of a manual aiming task with a non-inking pen on a digitizing tablet. The aiming task required four different conditions of...

METHODS Sixty-eight elderlies were paired in terms of age and gender and were equally distributed into depressed and nondepressed groups, according to their score on the Beck Depression Questionnaire. The participants performed the Grooved Pegboard Test placing and withdrawing pegs while execution time and error rate were measured. RESULTS This in...

The goals of the present project are (a) to investigate the level of mental workload involved in random and constant practice, (B) to investigate the level of mental workload decreasing during the practice in constant and random practice, and (c) to investigate the association between mental workload with both absolute and relative dimensions of the task in random and constant practice schedules.
