This study investigated skill-based differences in anticipation and visual search strategy within open-play situations in soccer. Experienced (n = 15) and inexperienced (n = 15) subjects were required to anticipate pass destination from filmed soccer sequences viewed on a large 3-m x 3-m video projection screen. MANCOVA showed that experienced soccer(More)
Subjects (120 young adults and 120 children) were tested for their abilities to estimate visually the distance to a target 5 m away, then walk unaided by vision to that target as accurately as possible. Experimental groups were determined by visual scanning time (1, 5, or 10 s), delay between the end of visual scanning and the start of locomotion (0, 1, 3,(More)
Electrophysiological recording procedures were used to examine basolateral amygdala (BLA) cell firing during cocaine self-administration and relative to response-independent presentations of cocaine-associated stimuli. Of 72 neurons (n = 10 rats), 31 cells (43%) were classified as phasically active, exhibiting one of three types of patterned discharges(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the validity of a recently developed rating scale of perceived exertion, the Children's Effort Rating Table (CERT), for controlling exercise intensity in young children. 16 children (M age = 9.9 yr., SD = 1.2) performed three separate exercise tests on a mechanically braked cycle ergometer. Stage I (response(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of visual feedback on isokinetic maximum torque and reciprocal muscle group ratio of the knee extensors and flexors at a slow (60 degrees /set) and a fast (180 degrees /sec) speed of movement. The real-time gravity-corrected torque output, used as the visual feedback source, elicited a significant(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine whether movement production during modelling would register timing changes communicated by a model during video-demonstration of a throwing action. 60 boys, 12 yr. of age, were placed in three groups and observed a computer-simulated, point-light demonstration of a darts-style movement used by a model to project a(More)

The effect of three observational strategies, namely, passive observation, enactive mediation, and delayed mediation, on the accuracy of imitating a modelled throwing action was assessed with a sample of 12-yr.-old schoolboys in a mixed factorial design. 9 boys were assigned to use one of the strategies to produce the pattern of arm movements displayed on a(More)
This paper describes a case study of the use of clinical information to improve gastroenterological services in a district general hospital. The clinical information has been derived from aggregation and analysis of operational clinical data collected in coded, structured form on a clinical information system over a period of 8 years. The monitoring of(More)
