Quick Overview

An occasional publication for the then Sport and Exercise Psychology Section, based on a workshop held in December 1996


The topic of cognitive enhancement in sport and exercise was covered comprehensively, with most papers focusing upon the use of cognitive strategies for improving performance. Two papers took a different view by examining the role of exercise in improving cognitive skills, decision making and creative thinking.


There was a mix of tried and tested procedures standing alongside methods that were in the course of being developed by the speakers. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches to cognitive enhancement were highlighted, while laboratory-based studies of motor skills stood comfortably alongside those involving emotional control strategies for both groups and individuals.
