Clinical Predictors Of Driving Simulator Performance In Drivers With Multiple Sclerosis, Sarah Krasniuk 2020 The University of Western Ontario

Clinical Predictors Of Driving Simulator Performance In Drivers With Multiple Sclerosis, Sarah Krasniuk

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Drivers with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) experience visual-cognitive impairment that may impact their fitness to drive. Fitness to drive is the ability to control a motor vehicle, as determined via a comprehensive driving evaluation, with in-clinic and on-road driving assessments. However, the on-road driving assessment may pose a crash risk to medically at-risk drivers. Instead, a driving simulator assessment that targets the driving performance deficits of drivers may inform fitness to drive decisions. However, utilizing clinical tests to indicate driving simulator performance in drivers with MS is not fully understood.

Through three aims, this dissertation will examine the clinical utility of ...

Variations In Slow-Wave Eeg And Working Memory Deficits During Letter Number Sequencing Task Post-Concussion, Morgan Sotoloff 2020 Ursinus College

Variations In Slow-Wave Eeg And Working Memory Deficits During Letter Number Sequencing Task Post-Concussion, Morgan Sotoloff

Neuroscience Presentations

Concussions are associated with various types of consequences, both short-term and long-term: ranging from acute symptomatology, resting protocols, return-to-play decisions, and the lingering effects that have been found to have significant impacts on cognitive processes and function in many individuals several months post-concussion. Previous research has demonstrated that certain dimensions of executive function are especially susceptible to mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI), specifically working memory and attention. Studies that have previously utilized electroencephalography (EEG), have found that increased very low frequency oscillations (VLFO) are associated with a disruption of goal-oriented activities, difficulties in cognition, hyperactivity, and inattention in concussed individuals ...


Black Drowning Deaths: An Introductory Analysis, Alena Gadberry, James Gadberry 2020 Gadberry Education Services

Black Drowning Deaths: An Introductory Analysis, Alena Gadberry, James Gadberry

International Journal of Aquatic Research and Education

Black children between the ages of 5 and 14 are 2.6 times more likely to drown than white children. A systematic exclusion from public pools and other forms of water activities over time has led to a lack of cultural capital involving aquatics among black families. Pierre Bourdieu has provided a theoretical foundation in which to understand this issue. The social fields created by generational socialization have made blacks feel like they have no place in the water. It will take a restructuring of the social institutions to set in motion the socialization (or a re-socialization) of new and ...


The Experiences Of Female Adolescents Who Have Sustained A Concussion Through Sport Participation: A Consideration Of An Occupational Perspective During Recovery, Annalise Michelle Tichenoff 2020 The University of Western Ontario

The Experiences Of Female Adolescents Who Have Sustained A Concussion Through Sport Participation: A Consideration Of An Occupational Perspective During Recovery, Annalise Michelle Tichenoff

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Adolescence is a time of rapid and tumultuous development in the physical, cognitive and psychosocial domains. Sustaining a concussion during this time period may complicate this development, particularly when symptoms are prolonged. Of particular importance is the study of adolescent females, as this population has been under-evaluated within the literature. This is especially troubling due to the number of concussions that occur among adolescent females, as concussions within this population reportedly occur at twice the frequency of adolescent males. This dissertation presents a qualitative case study investigation that explores the recovery experiences of adolescent female athletes who have sustained a ...
