Anticipation skill and susceptibility to deceptive movement.
The ability to detect deceptive movement was examined in skilled and novice rugby players. Participants (14 per group) attempted to predict direction change from video of expert and recreational… Expand
Attentional Focus, Dispositional Reinvestment, and Skilled Motor Performance under Pressure
Attentional processes governing skilled motor behavior were examined in two studies. In Experiment 1, fi eld hockey players performed a dribbling task under single-task, dual-task, and skill-focused… Expand
Routines, rituals and rugby: case study of a world class goal kicker
This paper presents a case study of the most prolific rugby goal kicker of all time. In the first part of the study, the consistency of his preperformance routine was analyzed over kicks of varying… Expand
Probing expert anticipation with the temporal occlusion paradigm: experimental investigations of some methodological issues.
Two experiments were conducted to examine whether the conclusions drawn regarding the timing of anticipatory information pick-up from temporal occlusion studies are influenced by whether (a) the… Expand
Attentional processes in skill learning and expert performance
Reinvestment, task complexity and decision making under pressure in basketball
The aims of this study were to investigate choking susceptibility in a perceptual judgment task and to examine the predictive validity of the Decision Specific Reinvestment Scale (DSRS). A… Expand
Dispositional reinvestment and skill failure in cognitive and motor tasks
Abstract Objective The objective of the study was to examine the moderating effect of dispositional reinvestment upon ‘choking’ in motor and cognitive tasks. Method Sixty-three university students… Expand
Expertise and Attunement to Kinematic Constraints
Three experiments were undertaken to ascertain the extent to which expertise in natural anticipatory tasks is characterised by superior attunement to the biomechanical (kinematic) constraints of the… Expand
The effect of learning condition on perceptual anticipation, awareness, and visual search.
The efficacy of explicit and implicit learning paradigms was examined during the very early stages of learning the perceptual-motor anticipation task of predicting ball direction from temporally… Expand
Advance Visual Information, Awareness, and Anticipation Skill
The authors examined 13 skilled, 13 recreational, and 11 novice players' awareness of the advance visual information that they used to judge tennis serve direction. Participants viewed video clips of… Expand
