The present article analyzes the diversity of motor skills related to three different kinds of instructions: descriptive, metaphoric, and kinesic, with a special emphasis on the detection of temporal patterns (T-patterns). Twelve undergraduates studying sport and physical education, but without experience in dance, were observed during 24 lessons of Body(More)
Quantitative analysis of sports performance has been shown to produce information that coaches can use within the coaching process to enhance performance. Traditional methods for quantifying sport performances are limited in their capacity to describe the complex interactions of events that occur within a performance over time. In this paper, we outline a(More)
Traditional methods for quantifying sport performances are limited in their capacity to describe the complex interactions of events that occur within a performance over time. The following article outlines a new approach to the study of actions between players in team sports--mainly, soccer. Since the observational design is nomothetic, point, and(More)
The behavioural analysis of human-robot interactions can help in developing socially interactive robots. The current study analyzes human-robot interaction with Theme software and the corresponding pattern detection algorithm. The method is based on the analysis of the temporal structure of the interactions by detecting T-patterns in the behaviour. We have(More)
In the field of sports research, there is a growing need for the rigorous collection of data that provide empirical evidence about the complex reality they refer to. Although sports psychology research has advanced considerably in recent years, in both extent and quality, one area of research that remains relatively unexplored is the dynamics of the sports(More)
Current techniques of repeated suicide risk assessment are not reliably predictive, and research into new methods is needed. The judgment of clinicians relies partly on nonverbal signs such as facial expressions. If differences in patients and/or interviewer's facial expressions appeared between subjects who were to make subsequent attempts (Repeaters) and(More)
In order to optimize sports performance it is considered necessary to employ sound scientific principles of physical conditioning and coaching. One of the most critical of these scientific principles is the rule of specificity. To elicit a high degree of transfer from training into competitive scenarios in key performance attributes such as physical(More)
