  • Hardy, Jared C.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2007Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2007)
    Conventional cylinder test measures have limited sensitivity in determining hemiparkinson rat forelimb use asymmetry and approximating substantia nigra (SN) dopaminergic neuron loss. This thesis investigates which cylinder ...
  • Kurek, Justin; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology, 2005)
    The effects of postural threat on gait initiation and steady state gait among Parkinson’s disease (PD) patients and age-matched adults were examined. Ten healthy adults (CTRL; mean age= 68.8 ± 8.4, range 56-80 years) and ...
  • Sacrey, Lori-Ann Rosalind (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neurosicence, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2012)
    The reach-to-eat movement, in which a hand is advanced towards a food item, shapes to grasp the food item, and withdrawals to place the food item into the mouth for eating, is a behaviour that is performed daily. The ...
  • Doan, Jonathon Edward Bruce; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2006Arts and ScienceDepartment of Kinesiology and Physical Education, 2006)
    Contextual influence on movement was examined for a selection of everyday activities. Non-medicated and medicated Parkinson's disease (PD) patients and control subjects reached for a drinking glass target from both seated ...
  • Sacrey, Lori-Ann Rosalind; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceNeuroscience, 2008)
    The sensory control of movements has been shown to be impaired with Parkinson’s disease. I investigated the task, reach-to-eat, in which advancing of the limb towards a target is guided by vision and withdrawal of the ...
  • de Bruin Nutley, Natalie (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Neuroscience, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2012)
    Music is a powerful stimulus for movement. This thesis examined the effects of music on walking performance. First, the effect of music salience (familiarity and enjoyment) and tempo on walking performance was examined ...
  • de Bruin Nutley, Natalie; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2008Arts and ScienceNeuroscience, 2008)
    The effect of concurrent music on gait was investigated amongst Parkinson‟s disease (PD) patients and age-matched control subjects. Ten people (mean age 66.6 ± 6.5 years) with idiopathic Parkinson‟s disease and ten healthy ...
  • Cooper, Stephanie A.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2005)
    Changes in postural stability following sensory manipulation were investigated among Parkinson's disease patients and healthy older adults. Sixteen Parkinson's disease patients (PD; mean age 68.2 + 2.7 years) and sixteen ...
  • Clark, Callie Anne Marie; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Canadian Centre for Behavioural Neuroscience , c2008Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2008)
    Diseases of the central and peripheral nervous systems affect one in five people in North America. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is the second most common neurodegenerative disease, after Alzheimer’s disease, and occurs in ...
