  • Repeated measure ANOVA results are based on the Greenhouse-Geisser correction. Post hoc method with Bonferroni correction for pairwise comparison.

  • Level of significance: *p<0.05, **p<0.01, ***p<0.001.

  • †Prior the ANOVA test a global significance was identified (MANOVA: p<0.008, etap2=0.712).

  • ANOVA, analysis of variance; COM, centre of mass; MANOVA, multivariate analysis of variance.
