function simplicity. The cMSIT may require a simpler motor response in comparison with the other 2 cognitive tasks used in the study. Alternatively, as executive control is comprised by many cognitive abilities, each may be affected by environmental and physiological stressors differently, while they may

it recognizes agility as an open motor skill requiring sufficient physical and cognitive abilities for improved performance. Therefore, with this new test, the clinician would be able to identify specific components of agility that are compromised. Once deficits in agility are detected, effective

However, we did not have a standardized, non-parent-report measure of these cognitive abilities, which is a limitation of the present study and a key avenue for future research. In terms of motor contributions to folding, grip strength and pinch strength covary
