The Gaia 20 pc white dwarf sample
Using Gaia DR2 data, we present an up-to-date sample of white dwarfs within 20 pc of the Sun. In total we identified 139 systems in Gaia DR2, nine of which are new detections, with the closest of… Expand
“Look where you’re going!”: gaze behaviour associated with maintaining and changing the direction of locomotion
In order to fully understand how vision is used to guide locomotion it is necessary to know what people look at as they move through the environment. This study provides information, hitherto… Expand
Effects of head immobilization on the coordination and control of head and body reorientation and translation during steering
We study the biomechanical effects of immobilizing the head (by fixing it to the trunk) on postural control and the sequencing of body segment reorientation during steering. Expand
A new paradigm to investigate the roles of head and eye movements in the coordination of whole-body movements
Although previous studies have demonstrated the existence of coordinated eye and head movements during gaze shifts, none has studied the temporal and spatial characteristics of the various body… Expand
Evidence for a link between changes to gaze behaviour and risk of falling in older adults during adaptive locomotion.
There is increasing evidence that gaze stabilization with respect to footfall targets plays a crucial role in the control of visually guided stepping and that there are significant changes to gaze… Expand

Displacements of the visual axis and multi-segmental (eye-to-foot) coordination in the yaw plane were studied in ten human subjects (Ss) during voluntary reorientations to illuminated targets of… Expand
Visually guided stepping under conditions of step cycle-related denial of visual information
We recently reported that subjects performing a task that requires visual guidance of each step onto irregularly placed “stepping stones” usually fixate the next target of footfall just before they… Expand
Evidence that older adult fallers prioritise the planning of future stepping actions over the accurate execution of ongoing steps during complex locomotor tasks.
Previous research has highlighted differences between older adults determined to be at a low-risk of falling (low-risk) and older adults prone to falling (high-risk) in both where and when they look… Expand
Core crystallization and pile-up in the cooling sequence of evolving white dwarfs
White dwarfs are stellar embers depleted of nuclear energy sources that cool over billions of years1. These stars, which are supported by electron degeneracy pressure, reach densities of 107 grams… Expand

Impairments in gait coordination may be a factor in falls and mobility limitations after stroke. Therefore, rehabilitation targeting gait coordination may be an effective way to improve walking… Expand
