  • Gonzalez, Claudia L. R.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2004Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2004)
    This thesis investigates the behavioural and anatomical correlates of recovery from motor cortex damage in rats. The effectiveness of behavioural, pharmacological, and regenerative treatments was investigated using models ...
  • de Bruin, Natalie; Bryant, Devon C.; MacLean, Jessica N.; Gonzalez, Claudia L. R. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical EducationUniversity of Lethbridge, 2016)
    This study examined the efficacy of a novel reaching-and-grasping task in determining visuospatial abilities across adulthood. The task required male and female young (18–25 years) and older adults (60–82 years) to ...
  • Stone, Kayla D.; Gonzalez, Claudia L. R. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical EducationUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    This review aims to provide a comprehensive outlook on the sensory (visual and haptic) contributions to reaching and grasping. The focus is on studies in developing children, normal, and neuropsychological populations, and ...

    Executive Function (EF) refers to important socio-emotional and cognitive skills that are known to be highly correlated with both academic and life success. EF is a blanket term that is considered to include self-regulation, ...

    We reach for and grasp different sized objects numerous times per day. Most of these movements are visually-guided, but some are guided by the sense of touch (i.e. haptically-guided), such as reaching for your keys in a ...
  • Gonzalez, Claudia L. R.; Flindall, Jason W.; Stone, Kayla D. (Frontiers MediaArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical EducationUniversity of Lethbridge, 2015)
    In the present study we investigate age-related changes in hand preference for grasping and the influence of task demands on such preference. Children (2–11), young-adults (17–28) and older-adults (57–90 ) were examined ...

    The internal perception of the hands has been found to be distorted. These distortions feature hand width that is overestimated and finger length that is underestimated. The purpose of this thesis was to explore the ...

    Hemispatial neglect is a common outcome of stroke that is characterized by the inability to orient toward, and attend to stimuli in contralesional space. It is established that hemispatial neglect has a perceptual ...

    The purpose of this thesis was to investigate manual asymmetries in the reach-to-grasp movement based on two hypotheses: 1) manual asymmetries are resultant from asymmetries in the dorsal vision-for-action system; and 2) ...
  • Flindall, Jason W.; Gonzalez, Claudia L. R. (Public Library of ScienceArts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical EducationUniversity of Lethbridge, 2013)
    Many theories have been put forward to explain the origins of right-handedness in humans. Here we present evidence that this preference may stem in part from a right hand advantage in grasping for feeding. Thirteen ...
  • Gibb, Robbin L.; Gonzalez, Claudia L. R.; Kolb, Bryan (Frontiers Research FoundationArts and ScienceDepartment of NeuroscienceUniversity of Lethbridge, 2014)
    Birth is a particularly vulnerable time for acquiring brain injury. Unfortunately, very few treatments are available for those affected. Here we explore the effectiveness of prenatal intervention in an animal model of early ...

    The current studies investigate the behavioral and anatomical changes after lesions at different ages of the cingulate cortex. Rats received lesions of the posterior cingulate cortex (PCing) or the anterior and posterior ...

    Degree of lateralization for grasping predicts the maturity of the language production system in young, typically-developing children. In this report we provide compelling evidence for the relationship between right hand ...

    The purpose of this thesis was to investigate the sensory contributions to hand preference for grasping. While numerous studies have investigated this preference for visually-guided grasping (a left-hemisphere specialization), ...
