The Effect Of Using Unisensory Event Certainty On The Psychological Refractory Period, James Wolfgang May 1973

The Effect Of Using Unisensory Event Certainty On The Psychological Refractory Period, James Wolfgang

Kinesiology, Sport Studies, and Physical Education Master’s Theses

In many situations where a person is required to react to two stimuli that occur in rapid succession there will be a lag in the response time of the second reaction. This lag in response is what is known as a “psychological refractory period” (PRP). The PRP is thought to be a limit of some mechanism in the brain to process successively occurring stimuli occurring between 50 – 250 milliseconds apart. Five different theories attempt to explain the mechanism underlying the PRP. This study tests one of them: the expectancy theory. Expectancy theory states that PRP depends on the subject’s ...


Effect Of An Overload Strength Training Program On Velocity And Distance Of A Thrown Lacrosse Ball, Thomas Earl Sawyer Jan 1973

Effect Of An Overload Strength Training Program On Velocity And Distance Of A Thrown Lacrosse Ball, Thomas Earl Sawyer

Ithaca College Theses

The purpose of this investigation was to determine the effect of an overload strength training program on (1) the velocity of the lacrosse overhand throw among midfielders and attackmen, and (2) the distance of a thrown lacrosse ball in the overhand throw among defensemen and goalies.

An Electromyographic Study Of The Effects Of Lateral Asymmetry On The Upper Leg Muscles Used In Normal Walking On A Treadmill, S. Marie Landmesser Jan 1973

An Electromyographic Study Of The Effects Of Lateral Asymmetry On The Upper Leg Muscles Used In Normal Walking On A Treadmill, S. Marie Landmesser

Masters Theses

The purpose of the study was to determine through electromyography whether a non-pathological fault, such as lateral asymmetry at the pelvic level, would hinder, in significant manner, efficient functioning of the body.

A review of the literature revealed that although previous experiments had been conducted to determine the effects certain postural deviations had on the normal, efficient functioning of the body and that previous experiments had been conducted to determine which muscles performed which task as related to walking, none dealt with the specific effects of lateral deviations at the pelvic level on the upper leg muscles used in walking ...
