theorized and hypothesized relationships, leading to an amplified relationship between the variables. This discrepancy in the temporal order of measurement might be partially responsible for the large heterogeneity of correlations in the reviewed sample of studies. Finally, theories such as social

there was a significant correlation between timing perception and timing variability in tapping. Third, there was a significant correlation between the timing of the pause in intermittent circle drawing and timing in tapping as well as in timing discrimination. Individuals who were sensitive to smaller

descriptive, correlational, atheoretical) studies suggested that parents contribute to children’s ongoing participation or dropout from sport. For instance, children consistently indicated that an overemphasis on winning and/or perceptions of pressure contributed to sport dropout (e.g.,  Gould et al., 1982

Although not directly related to frontal alpha findings, a previous study showed a negative correlation between performance and EEG dimensional complexity, a measure of neural assembly activation in which higher complexity indicates higher neural assembly activation

have effects on a child’s phenotype. A genetic effect is associated with a gene or set of genes encoded in the DNA of the chromosomes in the nucleus of the cells. Parent–child studies of stature have shown that parent–child correlations at birth are low but increase progressively with age, reaching .50

While strong correlations have been observed between muscle development and bone and tendon size and quality in 8- to 18

Recommendations for use of multiple bibliometrics and interpretation issues for kinesiology faculty are

A Bland-Altman plot indicated that the MSQ overestimated sedentary behavior (mean bias 80.5 min/day, 95% limits of agreement

Lackritz ( 2004 ) highlighted a significant correlation with the number of students taught by higher education instructors and faculty burnout. Furthermore, we are asking more of graduate students. Specifically, they may be asked to be the
