Cognitive fatigue effects on physical performance during running.
This study investigated the effect of cognitive fatigue on physical performance in a paced running task. Experienced runners (n = 20) performed two 3,000-m runs on an indoor track, once afterExpand

An internal focus of attention is not always as bad as its reputation: how specific aspects of internally focused attention do not hinder running efficiency.
The aim of this study was to examine differentiated effects of internally focused attention in endurance sports. Thirty-two active runners ran 24 min on a treadmill at a fixed speed of moderateExpand

On the optimal focus of attention for efficient running at high intensity.
At moderate intensity, an external focus of attention leads to improved running economy compared with an internal focus. In this experimental study, we assessed whether this finding also holds forExpand

An Internal Focus Leads to Longer Quiet Eye Durations in Novice Dart Players
While the benefits of both an external focus of attention (FOA) and of a longer quiet eye (QE) duration have been well researched in a wide range of sporting activities, little is known about theExpand
