Sport and the Brain: The Science of Preparing, Enduring and Winning, Part B, Volume 233 reflects recent advancements in the understanding of how elite athletes prepare for, and perform at, peak levels under the demands of competition. Topics discussed in this new release include a section on Exploring the Applicability of the Contextual Interference Effect in Sports Practice, The Resonant System: Linking Brain-body-environment in Sport Performance, the Effects of Acute High-intensity Exercise on Cognitive Performance in Trained Individuals: A Systematic Review, Moving Concussion Care to the Next Level: The Emergence and Role of Concussion Clinics in the UK, and Neurocognitive Mechanisms of the Flow State.
This longstanding series takes a multidisciplinary approach, focusing on aspects of psychology, neuroscience, skill learning, talent development and physiology.
- Takes a multidisciplinary approach, focusing on aspects of psychology, neuroscience, skill learning, talent development and physiology
- Focuses on sports and the brain
- Contains expertise and an international focus of contributors
- Adopts the novel approach of having a target article with critical commentaries on the lessons learned from British multiple gold medalists at Olympic and World Championships
Academics and students of performance psychology, sport expertise, skill acquisition, and neuroscience; and practitioners (coaches, sport scientists, performance directors, business managers) interested in understanding the building blocks of outstanding individual and team performance

Professor Wilson is the Associate Professor in experimental psychology and human movement science. Broadly, his research is interested in the processes underpinning skilled performance; why skills might break down under pressure; and how we might optimize the skill acquisition process. As a chartered psychologist and registered practitioner with the Health and Care Professions Council, he also provides psychological support services in a range of performance domains (including Olympic and professional athletes).

Dr. Walsh is Professor of Human Brain Research at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience at the University College, London. He is the author of over 300 manuscripts, most involving cognitive neuroscience and brain stimulation. The research group he leads is called Applied Cognitive Neuroscience (ACN). The goal is to use neuroscience to improve high performance in sport, high pressure decision making and advancing human brain stimulation in cognition and health. Prof Walsh is particularly interested in sleep, plasticity and extending classical findings to older people. Traditional strengths of his group's work has been investigations of the functions of the parietal lobe, the frontal eye fields and their interactions with primary and secondary visual areas. The techniques his group uses include transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) and DC stimulation. He runs the ICN TMS facility and also organises the annual TMS Summer School with The Magstim Company.
