Article
Full-text available
Performance of bimanual motor actions requires coordinated and integrated bilateral communication, but in some bimanual tasks, neural interactions and crosstalk might cause bilateral interference. The level of interference probably depends on the proportions of bilateral interneurons connecting homologous areas of the motor cortex in the two hemisp...

The relative age effect (RAE) is a statistical bias observed across sport contexts and consists of a systematic skewness in birth date distribution within an annual-age cohort. In soccer, January 1 st is the common cut-off date when categorizing players in competitions according to their chronological age, which potentially disadvantages those with...
Article
A comprehensive understanding of skill acquisition is important for different performance domains, and has practical implications for both sport sciences and public health. The study compared important constraints for expertise development in a physically demanding sport (cross-country skiing) versus a technically demanding sport (freeskiing). Eigh...

Different characteristics of sports disciplines potentially lead to skewness in birth month distribution (relative age effect, RAE). These characteristics can be considered from a constraint-based approach with interacting environmental, task, and individual constraints as a theoretical framework with which to examine variations in RAE. The main ai...

Chapter
I norsk skole og idrett er barn og ungdom gruppert i årganger kronologisk ut fra fødselsdato, og ut fra fødselsdato kan det være tilnærmet ett års aldersforskjell mellom personer som går på samme utdanningstrinn eller konkurrerer i samme årsklasse. Forskjellen i alder innenfor samme aldersgruppe blir henvist til å være den relative aldersforskjelle...

Examining participatory motives clarifies what engages and keeps individuals participating in exercise. The popularity of training at fitness centres has greatly increased over the last two decades, but individual determinants for motivation remain uncertain. This study compared motives between gender and age categories in training and performing p...
Article
Full-text available
Bimanual performance depends on effective and modular bilateral communication between the two bodysides. Bilateral neural interactions between the bodysides could cause bimanual interference, and the neuromuscular system for proximal and distal muscles is differently organized, where proximal muscles have more bilateral interneurons at both cortica...
Article
Full-text available
Our primary aim was to explore the development of player load throughout match time (i.e., the pattern) using moving 5-min windows in an elite soccer team and our secondary aim was to compare player load patterns between different positions within the same team. The dataset included domestic home matches (n = 34) over three seasons for a Norwegian...
Conference Paper
Introduction Dual-task interference is the relative change between single-task performance and a dual-task performance (Plummer & Eskes, 1988). A interpretation of the dual-task interference is the degree of distraction between two tasks performed simultaneously, and it is suggested that the interference increases with increased level of similarity...

Cycling is a popular sport, and evaluation of the validity of tests to predict performance in competitions is important for athletes and coaches. Similarity between performance in sprints in mass-start bike races and in the laboratory is found, but, to our knowledge, no studies have investigated the relationship between laboratory measurements of m...

We examined relative age effects (RAE) in national test results in reading literacy in Norway in 2013, in Grades 5, 8, and 9 students (n = 173,421) to estimate how month of birth is associated with mean scores and different achievement levels. The results confirm that there is an approximately linear decrease in test scores across months of birth f...

Entrainment is a ubiquitous property not only of interacting non-linear dynamical systems but also of human movements. In the study reported here, two premises of entrainment theory were investigated in a tapping task conducted in both interpersonal (i.e. between individuals) and intrapersonal (i.e. between effectors) conditions. Hypothesis 1 was t...

The aims of this study were to investigate the effects of throwing instruction (i.e., velocity and accuracy) and testing order (random or blocked) on dart throwing performance testing and on the movement strategies leading to this performance. Twelve physical education students (nine men and three women, age: 24 ± 7.5; mass: 77.7 ± 15.8, height: 1....
Article
A variety of training methods have been described in the literature to improve speed and agility. Step frequency, which is the rate at which steps can be reproduced, is one of the traditional step kinematic measure used to describe running technique. Previous research has illustrated the importance for faster acceleration (Murphy, Lockie, Coutts, 2...
Article
Full-text available
Relative age effect (RAE) refers to the phenomenon by which children born early in their year of birth perform more highly than children born later in the same cohort. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether an RAE exists in the Norwegian numeracy test for 5th, 8th, and 9th graders (National sample of 175,760). The results showed that the...

Full-text available
The current experiment investigated generalizability of motor learning in proximal versus distal effectors in upper extremities. Twenty-eight participants were divided into three groups: training proximal effectors, training distal effectors, and no training control group (CG). Performance was tested pre- and post-training for specific learning and...
Article
Full-text available
The Relative Age Effect (RAE) can be described as the advantage of being born early after a certain cut-off date within a group of selection. The effect has been found across a wide range of sports and is particularly evident in pre-elite sports and team sports with a high selection pressure. At the absolute top level in team elite sports, the adva...
Article
Physical education (PE) is perhaps the school subject most likely to produce relative age effects (RAE). Like in sports, physical maturity gives students an advantage in PE, which might well be mistaken for superior ability. The aim of the present study is to investigate the extent to which physical growth, measured as height, and RAE reflect the a...
Article
The relative age effect (RAE) refers to that children born early in their year of birth show higher performance compared to children born late in the same cohort. The present study evaluated whether RAE exists within non-competitive physical education (PE) attainments, change in RAE magnitude with age, and possible gender differences. The results s...

The aim of this study was to investigate if making the skill acquisition phase more difficult or easier would enhance performance in soccer juggling, and if this practice has a positive inter-task transfer effect to ball reception performance. Twenty-two adolescent soccer players were tested in juggling a soccer ball and in the control of an approa...
Article
The authors' aim was to compare spatial and temporal accuracy in proximal versus distal joints in upper extremities. Given the morphological differences in corticospinal and corticomotoneuronal projections for proximal and distal muscles, they hypothesized that bilateral asymmetry would be larger for distal than for proximal joints. Twelve particip...
Conference Paper
Introduction: Physical education (PE) is perhaps the school subject that is most susceptible to the relative age effect (RAE). Though being less competitive and selective than sports, students’ attainments rest on their physical performance rather than on academic or cognitive variables as in most other subjects. Like in sports (see for example Mus...
