Studies investigating combined effects of light touch and cognitive task are limited and available results are inconsistent regarding effects of cognitive task on postural control. Therefore, this study investigated the combined effects of light touch and cognitive task difficulty on postural control. Participants performed cognitive task and light touch individually and simultaneously. Results indicated that both light touch and cognitive task improved postural sway individually. The cognitive task difficulty moderately improved postural control. The simultaneous performance of cognitive task and light touch improved postural control and this improvement was more effective than individual performances of cognitive task and light touch.

Amaç:Bu çalışmanın amacı farklı zorlukta postural motor görev sırasında eş zamanlı olarak gerçekleştirilen bilişsel görevin postür kontrolü üzerine etkisinin incelenmesidir. Yöntem:19 gönüllü katılımcı (yaş:23±6 yıl, boy:171.7± cm, v.ağırlığı:71.1± kg) 1 dk boyunca üç farklı zorluk düzeyinde bilişsel görev altında, kuvvet platformu üzerinde ayakta sakin duruş (QS) ve istemli postural salınım (VS) hareketi yapmaları istenmiştir. Bilişsel görev işitsel olarak kendilerine ardışık olarak sunulan basit aritmetik...
Effect of individualized cognitive and postural task difficulty levels on postural control during dual task condition
Gursoy, Zeren G.; Yilmaz, Ugur; ÇELİK, HÜSEYİN; Arpinar-Avsar, Pinar; Kirazcı, Sadettin (2022-07-01)
© 2022 Elsevier B.V.Background: Previous dual task studies suggested that the difficulty of the concurrent cognitive and motor tasks may not be challenging to the same degree for each person. This study approaches this problem by setting individualized difficulty levels for tasks to examine the dual task interference. Research question: Do the features of postural sway depend on increased individualized difficulty levels of concurrent cognitive and postural activities? Methods: 20 young healthy participants...
EFFECT OF CONCURRENT FEEDBACK AND POSTURAL TASK DIFFICULTY ON POSTURAL CONTROL
TAŞCI, SEDA; Kirazcı, Sadettin; Çelik, Hüseyin; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2022-9)
Studies investigating the effect of concurrent feedback reported inconsistent results, especially on motor tasks with different difficulties. There is also lack of studies examining the effects of concurrent feedback on postural tasks with different difficulties. To fill this gap, this study investigated the effect of concurrent visual feedback (CVF) and postural task difficulty (PTD) on postural control in acquisition and retention phases. Participants were 40 university students who were randomly allocate...
Effect of cognitive task difficulty on postural control
Gürsoy, Zeren Görkem; Kirazcı, Sadettin; Department of Physical Education and Sports (2019)
Human posture control is accompanied usually in daily life with other tasks, such as cognitive tasks. This thesis is on the effects of cognitive task difficulty on postural control, the postural control mechanisms, attention and its relation to posture control and finally the dual task environments for posture control. The experiment’s set an individualized difficulty level for each participant. Results indicate that when motor and challenging cognitive tasks are completed under dual task conditions, dual t...
The cognitive bases of the development of past and future episodic cognition in preschoolers
ÜNAL, GÜLTEN; Hohenberger, Annette Edeltraud (2017-10-01)
The aim of this study was to use a minimalist framework to examine the joint development of past and future episodic cognition and their underlying cognitive abilities in 3- to 5-year-old Turkish preschoolers. Participants engaged in two main tasks, a what-where-when (www) task to measure episodic memory and a future prediction task to measure episodic future thinking. Three additional tasks were used for predicting children's performance in the two main tasks: a temporal language task, an executive functio...
