Why do some athletes choke under pressure? (10/27/2011)

Athletes know they should just do their thing on the 18th hole, or during the penalty shootout, or when they're taking a three-point shot in the last moments of the game. But when that shot could mean winning or losing, it's easy to choke. A new article published in Current Directions in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, looks at why paying too much attention to what you're doing can ruin performance. ...> Full Article


False starts can sneak by in women's sprinting (10/24/2011)

Olympic timing procedures don't accurately detect false starts by female sprinters, according to a new analysis by University of Michigan researchers. ...> Full Article


Study suggests key to avoiding ankle re-injury may be in the hips and knees (10/21/2011)

Nearly all active people suffer ankle sprains at some point in their lives, and a new University of Georgia study suggests that the different ways people move their hip and knee joints may influence the risk of re-injury. ...> Full Article


Knee injuries on the rise in child and adolescent athletes (10/20/2011)

Sports-related knee injuries in children and adolescents seem to be increasing at an alarming rate. Researchers at the Children?s Hospital of Philadelphia noted a more than 400 percent increase in these injuries at their institution over the last decade, according to new research presented on Sunday, Oct. 16, at the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference and Exhibition in Boston. ...> Full Article


Evidence points to potential roles for cognitive rehabilitation therapy in treating traumatic brain injury, but further research needed (10/16/2011)

There is some evidence about the potential value of cognitive rehabilitation therapy for treating traumatic brain injury. ...> Full Article


A shot of cortisone stops traumatic stress (10/8/2011)

Professor Joseph Zohar of Tel Aviv University says that a single extra dose of cortisone -- which the body naturally produces just after a traumatic event -- reduces the chance that an individual will develop PTSD by 60 percent. ...> Full Article


Athletes' streaks not all in our (or their) heads (10/7/2011)

Today in the online journal PLoS ONE, researchers report an analysis of five years of NBA free-throws that supports what is called the "hot hand" phenomenon: that a streak of positive outcomes is likely to continue. ...> Full Article


Neural linkage between motivation and motor functional recovery through rehabilitative training (10/3/2011)

The joint research team led by Associate Professor Yukio Nishimura from the National Institute for Physiological Sciences revealed that the more motor function recovery progresses, the stronger the functional connectivity between the brain which regulates motivation, and in the brain regions involved in the motor learning and functional recovery. The result of this study was reported in the PLoS ONE, an American science magazine (Sept. 28, 2011 electronic edition). ...> Full Article


Commonly used supplement may improve recovery from spinal cord injuries (10/2/2011)

A commonly used supplement is likely to improve outcomes and recovery for individuals who sustain a spinal cord injury, according to research conducted by University of Kentucky neuroscientists. ...> Full Article


Tendons absorb shocks muscles won't handle (10/1/2011)

Tendons absorb shocks muscles won't handleResearchers at Brown University have learned how muscles and tendons in the legs deal with sudden impacts. Experiments showed that tendons absorb the initial burst of energy from impact before the leg muscles react. The tendons act as shock absorbers, protecting the leg muscle from damage at the moment of impact. Results are published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B. ...> Full Article
