The role of spatial and temporal information in passage estimation of looming stimuli
Publication year: 2014

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Estimating the time remaining for certain objects to approach us in specific points in space is part of our daily routines. Extracting spatiotemporal information in order to respond to looming objects has been widely studied in the visual modality. Moreover, several studies tested the effect of visual stimuli’s occlusion in performance. However, modality may affect the role of different perceptual cues. Our goal is to understand the role of auditory and visual modalities in the perception of looming events. We found that participants were quite accurate in estimating the time remaining for an auditory looming stimulus to pass or contact them. Interestingly, we found a change in the perceptual strategy with higher uncertainty on the task. In a time-to-passage task, with a 50% stimulus’ occlusion, the final distance of the stimuli was more informative for the judgment than temporal variables. We are especially interested in understanding the cues that most contribute to participants’ performance on both visual and auditory modalities. We aimed to understand if continuous or intermittent information influence the accuracy and precision of passage’s judgment. This way, we would control whether variations on spatial and/or temporal information has an impact in the estimation of time remaining for passage.

Upper-limb functional tasks: The effect of location, instruction and object
Publication year: 2015
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
It is extremely difficult to simplify the relations between several body parts that perform human motion into one set of features. Therefore, the study of the upper-limb functionality is still in development, partly due to the wider range of actions and strategies for motor execution. Regarding functional motor tasks performed by the upper-limb, movement parameterization is still very scarce and not consistent. We propose here a methodology to assess the upper-limb motor action in a set of daily functional tasks, extracting key variables from different sources. In order to do so, we designed an experimental setup defining a workspace for the execution of the motor action and recorded electromyographic and kinematic data. Preliminary results seem to indicate a role of the target and intentionality, or at least interaction effects between them on the movement execution.

The role of body size and reachability on the time-to-passage estimation
Publication year: 2014
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
Our studies aim at determining the role of body size and reachability on the time-to-passage estimation. In order to understand the role of these spatial informations on temporal estimation, our participants were confronted to Point-light Walkers (PLW) and had to judge their time-to-passage. These PLWs could present different sizes and could pass at three different distances from participants which were defined as short reachable, reachable or non-reachable according to a
metric based on an arm's length average of adult individuals. This experiment was conducted with rigid PLWs, which approach participants without moving their limbs and then, was replicated with PLWs presenting biological motion. Our results have shown that in both experiments, participants were more precise to judge the time-to-passage of PLWs passing at a short reachable distance rather than at a reachable distance than at a non-reachable one and that the PLWs size has no influence on their time-to-passage judgments. Participants have judged more accurately the passage of rigid
PLWs than the PLWs presenting a biological motion, these last ones were being judge as passing sooner the participants. Discussion points out that adaptative process may explain the participants anticipation in the presence of a motion agent identified as biological and highlight some limitations of our experiments and some cues for further researches.

Title:
Tool-use changes the dimension of the interpersonal distances? : Analysis of the representation perceptual field of action and social space
Publication year: 2015
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
The objective of this research was to analyse the impact of tool-use in a social interaction as well as the effect it creates in perceptive distances estimation. We conducted two different experiments. In the first experiment, we evaluate the modification of interpersonal distances in passive condition with 21 participants using the Stop-distances paradigm. The participants were asked to judge the level of comfort when the stimulus (point light walker silhouette) approach to their. Two groups were elaborated to observe the effect of tool use in the judgement of distance. The control group performed the raking task using the short tool (10 cm) and the experimental group performed the same task using a long tool. The
results showed that the interpersonal distances don’t change after the tool-use. We interpret these results as a lack of activation of motor representation due to the passive condition. The second experiment was conducted in active condition using tools. 12 participants were asked to run a pre-test without tools and a post-test using tools. Two different groups were conformed into a control group and experimental group. Next, the participants were asked to evaluate the distances between themselves and the first avatar and match the distances between the avatars in fronto-parallel. Results show a significant marginal overestimation after tool use. We discuss the results in base on the neuro-cognitive model of the spacial categorization and selection for action by Coello and Delevoye (2007).

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It is highly common to find an atypical postural control behavior after a stroke associated with the loss of upper-limb movement. This brings a problem for stroke patients, which they become unable to perform daily tasks like reaching. To adapt this situation, the rehabilitation field and other numerous research and technological solutions to monitoring human movement of these patients plays an important role in medical fields and, specially, social fields.
Biomedical signals, such as myoelectric signals, are an impressive topic to study biomechanical and neurological aspects of human movement and in the research field of rehabilitation.
In this study, five healthy subjects participated, wherein each participant performed upperlimbs’ functional tasks of reaching and lifting that were then characterized, through EMG analysis. The participants undertook tasks in which trajectory (orientation and length) and type of object were varied. During these tasks, electromyography signals were recorded from biceps brachii (BB) and triceps brachii lateral (TRIlat).

Influência do contexto no onset do bicípite e tricípite braquial na subfase de transporte alcance
Publication year: 2015
Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT:
BACKGROUND:
The reach movement is a predictor of functionality and a perfect example of the ability to voluntarily position the hand in space so as to interact with the environment. Thus, combining the cognitive character of the reaching gesture with the upper limb relationship with the environment (resolution of motor problems), it becomes pertinent to understand how the context interferes with reaching performance.
AIM(S):
To assess, in non-pathological subjects, if the activation timings of biceps brachialis (BB) and triceps brachialis (TB) during the transport sub-phase of the reaching movement suffers variations when changing the object position in space, when changing the task goal using the same object and when performing the same task with different objects. Methods: six subjects over 45 years old and without pathology adopted the seated position and performed the following tasks with the dominant upper limb: 1) drink water from a bottle, 2) raise a bottle of water and 3) raise a cylindrical object. Each task was performed in three angles: 0º, 22,5º and 45º with the sagittal plane and repeated three times with 10 seconds of rest in between.
RESULTS:
There were no statistically significant results in relation to objectives under study, there was only one statistically significant result however was not expected.
CONCLUSION:
In this sample no conclusions were drawn about the implication of the context on the activation timings of either the BB or TB, namely the influences of the task, the object and its position in space, so to take some conclusion regarding the effect of the contexts in muscle activation it is necessary to conduct more studies.

Analysis and quantification of upper-limb movement in motor rehabilitation after stroke
Publication year: 2016

http://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007/978-3-319-46669-9_37
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
It is extremely difficult to reduce the relations between the several body parts that perform human motion to a simplified set of features. Therefore, the study of the upper-limb functionality is still in development, partly due to the wider range of actions and strategies for motor execution. This, in turn, leads to inconsistent upper-limb movement parameterization. We propose a methodology to assess and quantify the upper-limb motor execution. Extracting key variables from different sources, we intended to quantify healthy upper-limb movement and use these parameters to quantify motor execution during rehabilitation after stroke. In order to do so, we designed an experimental setup defining a workspace for the execution of the action recording kinematic data. Results reveal an effect of object and instruction on the timing of upper-limb movement, indicating that the spatiotemporal analysis of kinematic data can be used as a quantification parameter for motor rehabilitation stages and methods.

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Peripersonal space represents the area around the body where objects are coded in motor terms for the purpose of voluntary goal-directed actions. Previous studies have suggested that peripersonal space is also a safe space linked with our private area, influencing interpersonal space in social contexts. However, whether these two spaces rely on similar embodied processes remains an open issue. In the present study, participants observed a point-light walker (PLW) approaching them from different directions and passing near them at different distances from their right or left shoulder. While approaching, the PLW disappeared at a distance of 2 m and the task for the participants was to estimate if the interpersonal distance, at the time the PLW would have reached their level, was comfortable or not. Between two sessions of comfort judgments, the participants manipulated a 70 cm tool entailing an extension of peripersonal space, or a 10 cm tool entailing no extension of peripersonal space. The results revealed that the comfortable interpersonal distance was larger when the PLW crossed the mid-sagittal plane of the participants than when it approached them laterally, with a concomitant increase of response time. After participants manipulated the long tool, comfortable interpersonal distance increased, but predominantly when the PLW trajectory implied crossing the participants' mid-sagittal plane. This effect was not observed when participants manipulated the short tool. Two control tasks showed that using the long tool modified the reachability (control 1), but not the time to passage (control 2) estimates of PLW stimuli, suggesting that tool use extended peripersonal space without changing perceived visual distances. Overall, the data show that comfortable interpersonal distance is linked to the representation of peripersonal space. As a consequence, increasing peripersonal space through tool use has the immediate consequence that comfortable interpersonal distance from another person also increases, suggesting that interpersonal-comfort space and peripersonal-reaching space share a common motor nature.
