ian, thanks for the bump and additional link. Great timing, love this site for stuff like this.

I have a talk coming up in a few weeks at a community fitness center, some good resource info here.

Also I'm asking for some help, need a memory refresher on some brain studies. If I recall correctly there has been some study looking at (I think it was cats) and lack of brain development when certain stimulation was withheld at critical time of development. Anyone remember specifics? I want to use that as some reason why we need to be active and stimulate our brains with movement and not just video games and TV. Thanks ahead for any help that can be provided.

I think that was visual information, and it made the cats not able to see vertical structures, or else horizontal ones. I forget which.

Hi Kory,
If you can put your hand on Rosenbaum's Motor Control he has a chapter that covers the cat work. As I recall the absence of vertical or horizontal in the contained environment leads to the inability to "see" these features subsequently. Kittens deprived of horizontal references lose the reach reflex. However much of that stuff wad conducted in the seventies and I don't think there was any follow up.over long term to assess plastic effects or wether the impact could be reversed. I am not sure given subsequent revelations about elasticity in human in terms of sight/perception etc that the research can stand.

Regards

ANdy

References for development of visual guidance include work by

Held 1965 Plasticity in sensory-motor systems
Hein 1974 Prerequisite for development of visual guided reaching in the kitten
Held and Bauer 1967 Visually guided reaching in infant monkeys after restricted rearing

see also

Sadr and Sinha 2001 Exploring object perception
Ostrosvsky adn Sinha 2005 Object binding through motion

any work by P. Sinha which almost always refers to visual development in children.

regards

ANdy
