Fig.3 (IMAGE) University of Tsukuba Caption The relative angles of the head rotations in the sagittal plane (&theta;HDs) at each time point were significantly larger in the blind footballers (BF) than those in the sighted non-athletes (SN) at all time points. These results indicated that more downward head rotations were consistently observed in the blind footballers. The red and blue coloured bold lines represent the mean values for each group. The red and blue coloured thin dotted lines represent the values of the individuals for each group, and the bars represent the standard deviation. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01 Credit University of Tsukuba Usage Restrictions Unauthorized use is prohibited License Licensed content Disclaimer: AAAS and EurekAlert! are not responsible for the accuracy of news releases posted to EurekAlert! by contributing institutions or for the use of any information through the EurekAlert system.
