In this study we investigated event related-potential (ERP) component c247, which reflects the recognition process in two classes of subject: a sample with high risk (HR) for alcoholism and a sample of control subjects with low risk (LR). The results of this study suggest that the amplitude of the c247 to repeated pictures of common objects was decreased(More)
Based on neurology and cognitive science many studies are developed to understand the human model mental, getting to know how human cognition works, especially about learning processes that involve complex contents and spatial-logical reasoning. Event Related Potential - ERP - is a basic and non-invasive method of electrophysiological investigation. It can(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) on physiological parameters, cutaneous temperature, tactile sensitivity, and balance. Twenty-four healthy adults (25.3 ± 2.6 years) participated in four WBV sessions. They spent 15 minutes on a vibration platform in the vertical mode at four different frequencies (31, 35, 40,(More)
The goal of this study was to investigate the effect of whole body vibration (WBV) on human tactile sensitivity, both the immediate effects and the recovery time in the case of altered sensitivity. Twenty adults (25.3±2.6 years, 10 males) participated in a 10-min WBV session, at a frequency of 42 Hz with 2 mm amplitude in a spiral mode. Sensitivity was(More)
OBJECTIVES This study evaluated plantar thermography sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing diabetic polyneuropathy using cardiac tests (heart rate variability) as a reference standard because autonomic small fibers are affected first by this disease. METHODS Seventy-nine individuals between the ages of 19 and 79 years old (28 males) were evaluated and(More)
Whole-body vibration (WBV) training has become popular in recent years. However, WBV may be harmful to the human body. The goal of this study was to determine the acceleration magnitudes at different body segments for different frequencies of WBV. Additionally, vibration sensation ratings by subjects served to create perception vibration magnitude and(More)
The article aims to present the results of an evaluation about the use of the Socrative App as a teaching tool for building meaningful learning, working with Peer Instruction as active methodology. In this case study the investigation subjects evaluated the app with essay questions. The results suggest that the app, with practiced methodology, contributes(More)
OBJECTIVE : To evaluate and compare proprioception, body balance and knee functionality of individuals with or without unilateral anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. METHODS : Forty individuals were divided in two groups: Experimental group, 20 individuals with ACL reconstruction at six months postoperative, and control group, 20 individuals(More)
Proposta de um instrumento digital para a verificação do comportamento de motoristas Abstract This article aims to present the development and implementation of a digital game traffic, to assist in education and traffic safety. The main interest of this work is research and development of an instrument, play, to identify and evaluate the occurrence of risk(More)
The aim of this work is to investigate quantitatively the capability of the Continuous Wavelet Transform (CWT) as a tool to estimate (calculate) Jitter and Shimmer, assessing the error between these indices calculated in each Wavelet decomposition and the ones for the original signal, for several dilatation levels. Two synthetic vowels /a/ were generated(More)
