Description
Summary:"This text features three innovations solidly based in research: the vision-in-action method of recording what athletes actually see when they perform, the quiet-eye phenomenon that has attracted considerable media attention, and decision training to identify and facilitate visual perception and action to enhance performance. Author Joan Vickers - who discovered the quiet eye and developed the vision-in-action method - takes the next step by integrating all three innovations into an effective system for helping athletes improve performance." "Perception, Cognition, and Decision Training: The Quiet Eye in Action is applied to a variety of sports and settings through a three-step decision-training model and seven ready-to-use tools for encouraging athletes to become part of the decision-training process. Screen captures from the latest in eye-tracking technology show what athletes actually see, where their eyes are directed, and how their gaze differs depending on their ability level. The case studies and cutting-edge research presented in this book allow readers to appreciate the growing importance of cognition, vision, and decision making; it also shows them how to apply this knowledge to sport training and coaching."--BOOK JACKET.
