The influence of spatial working memory on ipsilateral remembered proprioceptive matching in adults with cerebral palsy
TLDR
It was found that participants were significantly more consistent in their matches when given more time to encode proprioceptive targets in the long duration condition, and the benefit of having more time was greatest for individuals with the highest variable errors in the short target condition.
Compromised encoding of proprioceptively determined joint angles in older adults: the role of working memory and attentional load
TLDR
The role cognitive factors play in the assessment of older adult proprioceptive acuity using memory-based matching paradigms is highlighted and older adults with LOW working memory appear prone to compromised proprioception encoding, especially when secondary cognitive tasks must be concurrently executed.
Short-term retention of proprioceptive information
TLDR
The findings do not support the idea that visuospatial sketchpad plays a fundamental role in the storage of proprioceptive information, and the independence of span measures indicates that proprioception information might be stored in a subsystem independent of the visuosphere sketchpad or phonological loop.
The contribution of proprioceptive acuity to upper limb motor performance in older and younger adults
TLDR
A novel method of measuring upper limb proprioception using a 2D-robotic manipulandum with older and younger adults is presented and a limited role of proprioceptive loss is found in the presentation of age-related impairments in motor control.
Upper-Limb Position Sense Deficits in Adults with Cerebral Palsy
TLDR
The results suggest an important role for the reference arm in bilateral position matching tasks and the potential for improved proprioceptive performance after training in movement and unrelated sensory tasks.
Proprioception is subject-specific and improved without performance feedback
TLDR
It is found that people improved their proprioception when tested repetitively without performance feedback, and the conventional proprioceptive test itself, even without feedback, can improve proprioceptions but leave the idiosyncrasy of propriocept unchanged.
Impact of motor task execution on an individual’s ability to mirror forearm positions
TLDR
Findings are relevant for interpreting in future work the reason why impairments occur, on similar tasks, in individuals with altered motor commands, working memory, and arm impedance, e.g., post-stroke hemiparesis.
The Working Memory Benefits of Proprioceptively Demanding Training: A Pilot Study
TLDR
The data indicated that active, healthy adults who undertook acute, proprioceptively demanding training improved working memory scores compared to the classroom and yoga groups, and one possible reason that the training yielded significant working memory gains could be that theTraining was proprieceptively dynamic, requiring proprioception and at least one other factor at the same time, which may have contributed to the improvements in working memory performance.
Sensory Integration During Goal Directed Reaches: The Effects of Manipulating Target Availability
TLDR
Manipulating the visual environment was not enough to change subjects' weighting strategy, further indicating that sensory information is integrated in accordance with the reliability of a sensory cue.
Proprioceptive assessment of the wrist joint across both joint degrees of freedom
TLDR
This study aimed to systematically map the proprioceptive acuity of the wrist for its two joint degrees of freedom - flexion/extension (FE) and abduction/adduction (AA) using a robotic device.

Upper limb asymmetries in the matching of proprioceptive versus visual targets.
TLDR
A left arm/right hemisphere advantage for proprioceptive feedback processing and a right arm/left Hemisphere advantage for visual information processing is suggested.
Task-dependent asymmetries in the utilization of proprioceptive feedback for goal-directed movement
TLDR
It was found that the non-preferred left arm of right handers matched target elbow angles more accurately than the preferred arm, but only in the matching condition that required both memory and interhemispheric transfer.
Upper limb asymmetries in the utilization of proprioceptive feedback
TLDR
The results extend current theories of handedness by demonstrating that, in right-handed individuals, the non-preferred arm/hemisphere system is more adept at utilizing position-related proprioceptive information than the preferred arm/ Hemisphere system.
Control of limb dynamics in normal subjects and patients without proprioception.
TLDR
The role of proprioceptive input is examined by comparing the motor performance of five normal subjects with that of two patients with large-fiber sensory neuropathy and found that patients lacking proprioception input from their limbs have particular difficulty performing multijoint movements.
A distance effect in a manual aiming task to remembered targets: a test of three hypotheses
TLDR
The results suggest that prolonged movement execution interferes with the stored egocentric target representation and supports a movement duration interpretation of the distance effect.
Does limb proprioception drift?
TLDR
The hypothesis that proprioceptively perceived limb position drifts during visual occlusion was re-examined by combining some of the protocols used in previous experiments, and a notion of central-drift between visual and proprioceptive maps is suggested as an alternative hypothesis.
Proprioception does not quickly drift during visual occlusion
TLDR
These results suggest that proprioception does not quickly drift in the absence of visual information, as suggested in earlier studies.
