Poster #49: Ashlee McBride – The Effects of Mobility-Related Anxiety and a Common Dual Task on Turning Kinematics: A Virtual Reality Study

Faculty mentor: Peter Fino

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of mobility-related anxiety on conversational speech performance when turning. We required healthy adults to perform a DT at simulated low and high virtual heights using Virtual Reality. We hypothesized that performing a DT while turning would lead to greater performance deficits at high compared to low height, , reflected as slower and longer turns, and more frequent and longer silent pauses in speech.
