How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Bij de ziekte van Parkinson zijn evenwichtsproblemen niet ongewoon. Aanvullende visuele feedback over de zwaaibewegingen van het lichaam tijdens het staan kan de prestatie op een houdingstaak verbeteren en balanstraining ondersteunen. Tegelijkertijd lijken mensen met parkinson extra afhankelijk te zijn van visuele informatie. Ze zijn daarmee mogeli...
Article
Body image disturbance is a key symptom of Anorexia Nervosa (AN). Previous studies found that women with AN overestimate their body size in comparison with healthy controls (HC), at least for unimodal measures involving either only visual input (e.g. distorted photographs technique) or only tactile input (e.g. tactile distance tasks). Distorted bod...

Objective: In patients with Parkinson’s disease (PD), augmented visual feedback (VF) can improve functional motor performance. Conversely, they appear to rely more on visual information than healthy subjects, which is unfavorable when this information is unreliable. Cortical beta activity is thought to be associated with the need for motor adaptati...

Augmented visual feedback (VF) may offer benefits similar to those of rhythmic external cues in alleviating some mobility-related difficulties in individuals with Parkinson's disease (PD). However, due to an impaired ability to reweigh sensory information under changing circumstances, subjects with PD may be rather vulnerable to incongruity of visu...

In individuals with Parkinson’s disease (PD), augmented visual feedback (VF) may offer benefits similar to those of rhythmic external cues. We here showed not only that patients with PD exhibit greater reliance on congruent VF, but also that event-related alpha and beta modulation across the motor network discriminated between individuals with PD a...
Article
Background: Balance training has been demonstrated to improve postural control in patients with Par-kinson's disease (PD). The objective of this pilot randomized clinical trial was to investigate whether a balance training program using augmented visual feedback is feasible, safe, and more effective than conventional balance training in improving p...

Patients with Parkinson's disease often suffer from reduced mobility due to impaired postural control. Balance exercises form an integral part of rehabilitative therapy but the effectiveness of existing interventions is limited. Recent technological advances allow for providing enhanced visual feedback in the context of computer games, which provid...
Article
We performed an experiment in which we challenged postural stability in 12 healthy subjects by providing artificial delayed visual feedback. A monitor at eye-height presented subjects with a visual representation of the location of their center-of-pressure (COP) and they were instructed to position their COP as accurately as possible on a small tar...
Article

Two experiments were conducted to examine effects of muscle fatigue on motor-unit synchronization of quadriceps muscles (rectus femoris, vastus medialis, vastus lateralis) within and between legs. We expected muscle fatigue to result in an increased common drive to different motor units of synergists within a leg and, hence, to increased synchroniz...
