    Assessment of balance and mobility in clinical settings can help to determine both risk of falling and the most suitable measures to reduce postural instability. Laboratory studies have shown that postural control embraces different reactions to external disturbances, anticipatory postural...

    Background: Impairment of balance control is one of the most disabling symptoms in Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It is known that, in the presence of a predictable postural perturbation, the Central Nervous System (CNS) utilizes Anticipatory Postural Adjustments (APAs) to maintain balance while...

    The aim of the study was to investigate the role of short-term training in improvement of anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) and its effect on subsequent control of posture in older adults. Nine healthy older adults were exposed to self-initiated and predictable external perturbations...

    While much is known about the effects of dual tasking on cyclical and continuous motor performance (e.g., locomotion), there is a paucity of information on the effect of dual tasking on the initiation of movement. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a concurrent...

    We studied changes in multi-finger synergies associated with predictable and unpredictable force perturbations applied to a finger during a multi-finger constant total force production task. The main hypothesis was that indices of multi-finger synergies can show anticipatory changes in...

    The aim of the study was to investigate the differences in anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) between young and older adults and its effect on subsequent control of posture. Ten healthy older adults and thirteen healthy young adults were exposed to predictable external perturbations using...

    During the initiation of stepping, anticipatory postural adjustments (APAs) for lateral weight transfer and propulsion normally precede the onset of locomotion. In Parkinson's disease (PD), impaired step initiation typically involves altered APA ground force production with delayed step onset...

    Humans are known to show anticipatory adjustments in the grip force prior to a self-generated or predictable action or perturbation applied to a hand-held object. We investigated whether humans can also adjust covariation of individual finger forces (multi-finger synergies) prior to...

    Balance control must be rapidly modified to provide stability in the face of environmental challenges.
