A time-sharing study used shadowing and interpretation/paraphrasing tasks to evaluate lateralization in professional interpreters individually matched to bilingual and monolingual controls. A two-step multivariate general linear model procedure was used to determine lateralized effects and extent of disruption produced by the tasks. Results revealed the(More)
This paper presents the design of a new user-cooperative rope robot. This robot serves as a large-scale haptic interface in a multi-modal Cave environment used for sport simulation. In contrast to current rope robots, the configuration of the presented robot is adaptable to different simulation tasks what makes the robot more versatile. However, this(More)
A dual-task paradigm with concurrent verbal and spatial tasks was used to investigate differences across three age groups for lateralized effects, magnitude of tapping interference, and cognitive task output. In addition, rescaled scores comparing verbal with spatial measures within and across age groups were analyzed to examine asymmetric age differences(More)
The hypothesis that behavioral asymmetries with the dual task paradigm represent manual dominance was investigated with right- and left-handed males performing verbal and spatial tasks ordered by complexity. Lateralization was assessed for nonideational (perfunctory) and ideational (purposeful) components of tasks with multivariate and ANCOVA procedures.(More)
BACKGROUND Anthroponotic cutaneous leishmaniasis (CL) due to Leishmania (L.) tropica infection is a chronic, frequently disfiguring skin disease with limited therapeutic options. In endemic countries healing of ulcerative lesions is often delayed by bacterial and/or fungal infections. Here, we studied a novel therapeutic concept to prevent superinfections,(More)
A dual-task follow-up investigation examined the influence of sample size and ideational complexity of cognitive tasks on lateralized effects. With a larger sample (n = 128), results showed a "manual dominance effect" for relaxed and paced nonideational vocalized tasks. A hierarchy of ideational verbal tasks yielded the expected lateralized effects which(More)
