Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of night time sleep on the consolidation of fine motor skills in 19 to 25 year old students following a training session with and without neuromuscular facilitation through proprioceptive sensors. Methods: In this study22 right-handed students (19-25 years old) with good sleep quality and no neuromuscular disease were randomly divided into the control and experimental (neuromuscular facilitation) groups. Participants of the experimental and control groups practiced one training session of dart throwing on the first day (54 attempts) and immediately participated in acquisition test (9 attempts). Afterwards, in the morning of second day, the retest (9 attempts) was performed. To evaluate the development of performance accuracy, the tests of acquisition and the retest were compared. To analyze the data, the analysis of variance for between-within subjects with a significant level of α=0.05 were used. Results: The results did not show a significant difference in accuracy performance before and after the night sleep (F=3.9, P=0.62) as well as between the two groups (F=0.13, P=0.71). Conclusion: The results of this study show that night sleep with and without proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation before fine motor skills training have no effect on the components of accuracy.
