Description

Sport and the Brain: The Science of Preparing, Enduring and Winning, Part C, Volume 240, 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 The influence of challenge and threat states on affect, perceived exertion, attention, and performance during a competitive sprint cycling task, Prior self-control exertion and perceptions of pain and task importance during a physically demanding task, Enhancing cardiac vagal activity in sport psychology, The influence of cardiac vagal activity on peripheral perception performance under pressure, and much more.

Key Features

  • Takes a multidisciplinary approach, focusing on aspects of psychology, neuroscience, skill learning, talent development and physiology
  • Focuses on sports and the brain
  • Contains the expertise of an international panel 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

Readership

Academics from undergraduate level to active researchers in the field
