Training

The most exciting opportunities within the Sports Psychology Laboratory lie within the facilitation of training and learning within realistic simulations.

It was previously thought that moving from “the real-world sport setting” into a laboratory meant removing ourselves from the uniqueness of the sport. With access to the latest video and picture technology, we can realistically simulate environments conducive to viable training.

For elite sports, this technology opens up a wide array of new opportunities for research on use of simulations, for regular preparation and for mastery of key situations previously reserved only for high stake competitions. Our technology helps us enhance reality with the help of motion, sound, wind and temperature. We can augment reality further by adding additional information about speed, force, breathiTeng, muscle or brain activity.
