Bimanual grasping adheres to Weber's law. [Dataset] (2021)
Dataset
HESSE, C., HARRISON, R.E., GIESEL, M. and SCHENK, T. 2021. Bimanual grasping adheres to Weber's law. [Dataset]. Hosted on Zenodo [online]. Available from: https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.5115810

The perception–action model (PAM; Milner and Goodale (1995, 2006)) suggests two uses for vision that are independent and governed by anatomically and functionally distinct visual streams in the extrastriate cortex. The ventral stream is assumed to pr... Read More about Bimanual grasping adheres to Weber's law. [Dataset].

Simulating association between training load and injury using the acute: chronic workload ratio and Bayesian methods in youth football. (2017)
Presentation / Conference
MAUGHAN, P., BURGESS, K.E. and SWINTON, P. 2017. Simulating association between training load and injury using the acute: chronic workload ratio and Bayesian methods in youth football.
