Centre for Sports Science and Sports Medicine: Sports Sciences research aims to further our understanding of the learning processes, mental imagery processes and biomechanical principles governing sport and exercise performances across the spectrum ranging from beginner to elite performer levels. Key disciplines include cognitive and behavioural psychology and biomechanics.
Research in the field of observational learning has contributed to scholarly understanding of what information is used for constraining the acquisition of intra- and inter-limb coordination.
Research into motor cognition has led to the development of innovative methods for measuring imagery in action. Work on the biomechanics of golf has been developed, building upon previous research for the World Professional Bodies and providing research evidence for rule decision-making.
