• sedation
  • As a "non-sedating" antihistamine, loratadine causes less (but still significant, in some cases) sedation and psychomotor retardation than the older antihistamines because it penetrates the blood/brain barrier to a smaller extent. (wikipedia.org)
  • cognition
  • Participants' cognition is also tested using the Neurobehavioral Evaluation System (NES3) and the Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Consequently, this interdisciplinary field is concerned with investigations of the neural bases of human perception, cognition, and performance in relation to systems and technologies in the real world-for example, in the use of computers and various other machines at home or in the workplace, and in operating vehicles such as aircraft, cars, trains, and ships. (wikipedia.org)
  • Movement
  • DESIGN: PD patients consecutively performed paradigms, which assess reactivity and movement performance, after a standardised period of rest or of age-related, heart rate adapted endurance exercise on two consecutive days in a random order. (biomedsearch.com)
  • assessment
  • Adaptive automation, a novel neuroergonomic concept, refers to a human-machine system that uses real-time assessment of the operator's workload to make the necessary changes to enhance performance. (wikipedia.org)
  • test
  • It was concluded that a daily half-hour psychomotor test of space crews is probably not sufficiently stable to meet biomedical monitoring requirements. (dtic.mil)
  • The morning after dosing, participants' academic performance is measured using a standardized achievement test (Graduate Record Exam) and a quiz on material presented in the video lecture the prior afternoon before dosing. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • as PDD patients significantly display poorer performance on this test. (wikipedia.org)
  • tests
  • Performance tests in pattern discrimination, choice reaction time, and visual/vigilance were administered before, during, and after exposure. (cdc.gov)
  • They return the next week for the second dosing night/dosing morning, and receive either alcohol or placebo, depending on what was administered the previous week, and take different but comparable performance tests. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • HUMAN
  • Traditional ergonomic studies rely predominantly on psychological explanations to address human factors issues such as: work performance, operational safety, and workplace-related risks (e.g., repetitive stress injuries). (wikipedia.org)
  • The goal of merging these two fields is to use the startling discoveries of human brain and physiological functioning both to inform the design of technologies in the workplace and home, and to provide new training methods that enhance performance, expand capabilities, and optimize the fit between people and technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • hangover
  • We are also collecting information on hangover symptoms and sleep quality the morning after dosing, in addition to participants' self ratings of academic performance. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • motor performance
  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Three-dimensional kinematic analysis of reaching has emerged as an evaluative measure of upper-extremity motor performance in people after stroke. (biomedsearch.com)
  • However, the psychometric properties supporting the use of kinematic data for evaluating longitudinal change in motor performance have not been established. (biomedsearch.com)
  • DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Depending on the demands of the motor task and the analytical method, most kinematic outcome measures (such as peak hand velocity, endpoint error, reach extent, maximum shoulder flexion range of motion, and minimum elbow extension range of motion) are reliable measures of motor performance in people after stroke. (biomedsearch.com)
  • BACKGROUND: Following cued levodopa (LD) intake, endurance exercise showed a beneficial effect on scored motor performance in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) in comparison with rest. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Motor performance was assessed using parallel bar traversal on PD 42-44, and total Purkinje cell numbers were determined by using the 3-dimensional stereological optical fractionator method. (biomedsearch.com)
  • people
  • People with low caffeine intake have a decreased performance later in the day, compared to moderate and a high-level caffeine intake. (wikipedia.org)
