Effects of competitive pressure on expert performance: underlying psychological, physiological, and kinematic mechanisms.

Abstract

Although it is well established that performance is influenced by competitive pressure, our understanding of the mechanisms which underlie the pressure-performance relationship is limited. The current experiment examined mediators of the relationship between competitive pressure and motor skill performance of experts. Psychological, physiological, and… (More)
