Targeted Exercise Therapy To Enhance Neural Activation, Terence Moriarty, Kelsey Bourbeau, Bryanne Bellovary, Micah Zuhl

Shared Knowledge Conference

Various types of exercise therapies, have been implemented into treatment for those suffering from psychological disorders and traumatic brain injury. The prefrontal cortex (PFC), which houses key cognitive constructs is responsive to exercise, and is commonly measured using functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS). Evidence suggests that exercise mediates neural adaptation through increased blood flow and neurogenesis, which enhances neural activation leading to improved cognitive performance. However, the intensity of exercise that has the most robust impact on brain blood flow is currently unknown. Purpose. Therefore, the primary aim of the study is to compare PFC activation during cognitive tasks performed ...


Determining The Efficacy Of Fifa 11+ In Reducing Acl Injury In Female Soccer Players, John Hallmark 2018 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois

Determining The Efficacy Of Fifa 11+ In Reducing Acl Injury In Female Soccer Players, John Hallmark

Celebration of Learning

Objective-This study aims to identify the relationship between the Fifa 11+ program and the angle of valgus deformity at the knee. Background-200,000 ACL tears are reported each year. Previous studies have linked valgus motion of the knee to an increased rate of ACL injury and females exhibit a 4-6x increased risk for ACL injury. Fifa 11+ has shown promise in studies done on professional soccer teams yet remains untested in a younger population. Methods-This prospective cohort study of 300 consented female soccer players will use Noraxon as a tool for the measurement of valgus angle at ...
