How changing the focus of attention affects performance, kinematics, and electromyography in dart throwing.
Research has found an advantage for an external focus of attention in motor control and learning; instructing subjects to focus on the effects of their actions, rather than on body movements, canExpand

Video Games and Rehabilitation: Using Design Principles to Enhance Engagement in Physical Therapy
Patient nonadherence with therapy is a major barrier to rehabilitation. Recovery is often limited and requires prolonged, intensive rehabilitation that is time-consuming, expensive, and difficult. WeExpand

  • 1 February 2012
Lohse, Sherwood, and Healy (2010) found that an external focus of attention (FOA) improved performance in a dart-throwing task and reduced the time taken between throws, but using the time betweenExpand

Engaging Environments Enhance Motor Skill Learning in a Computer Gaming Task
ABSTRACT Engagement during practice can motivate a learner to practice more, hence having indirect effects on learning through increased practice. However, it is not known whether engagement can alsoExpand

Thinking about muscles: the neuromuscular effects of attentional focus on accuracy and fatigue.
Although the effects of attention on movement execution are well documented behaviorally, much less research has been done on the neurophysiological changes that underlie attentional focus effects.Expand

Neuromuscular Effects of Shifting the Focus of Attention in a Simple Force Production Task
ABSTRACT Research on the focus of attention has begun exploring the physiological changes that underlie the difference between internal and external foci of attention. However, previousExpand
