With regard to psychomotor performance, studies indicate that sheer reductions in sleep quantity rather than variations in the time spent in a certain sleep stage (e.g., more time spent in deep sleep) are responsible for the observed effects (e.g., Edinger et al., 2000; Tilley and Wilkinson, 1984).
Rhodiola ingestion shortened reaction time and total response time in psychomotor testing, and significantly increased psychomotor performance compared to placebo (16.0% vs.
Effects of acute and repeated doses of two muscle relaxants chlormezanone and thiocoside, on vigilance and psychomotor performance of healthy volunteers.
Since the effects of hypoxia include confusion, euphoria, inability to concentrate, impaired decision-making, impaired psychomotor performance and loss of consciousness it can be very unsafe to fly.
Third, bright light improves psychomotor performance. For example, daytime exposure to bright light has improved performance in a psychomotor vigilance task [8].
Moreover, the psychomotor performance evaluation in current trial is based on CFFF only.
FHWA researchers continue to develop and improve safety enhancements for the Nation's roads to address the challenges facing older drivers, ranging from declining vision to decreased flexibility and psychomotor performance, and changes in perceptual and cognitive performance.
As discussed earlier, nutrition plays an important role in brain development and psychomotor performance. The improvement of nutritional status has a positive correlation with the development of psychomotor skills observed through a cross-sectional study of children 24-35-month-old as measured by weight for age, height for age, MUAC and head circumference, and psychomotor functioning [10].
Impairment in psychomotor speed and information processing speed has been reported after aSAH and stroke; however, no study was found that evaluated poor psychomotor performance and work quality.
