A Dual-Accelerometer System for Detecting Human Movement in a Free-living Environment

Conclusions This validation study demonstrated that a dual-accelerometer system previously validated in a laboratory setting also performs well in semi free-living conditions. Although these results are promising and progressive, further work is needed to expand the scope of this measurement system to detect other components of behavior (e.g., activity intensity and sleep) that are related to health.

Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: Trends in Cognitive SciencesAuthor(s): Simon Ruch, Katharina HenkeCan information that is processed during sleep influence awake behavior? Recent research demonstrates that learning during sleep is possible, but that sleep-learning invariably produces memory traces that are consciously inaccessible in the awake state. Thus, sleep-learning can likely exert implicit, but not explicit, influences on awake behavior.
