Sport and Exercise Psychology Orientation
Researchers adopt different ways (orientations) of studying the individual and
the sport/exercise environment
1.) Psychophysiological Orientation
Study of psychological reactions and psychological processes through
measures of physiological responses
There are some psychologists who study psychology of sport performance
who try to understand the connection between physiological processes and
psychological processes
Use Heart Rate, Electroencephalography (EEG), and Blood catecholamine
Ex. Teaching a curler to lower their heart rates when attempting to make an
important shot
EEG – studies what parts of the brain are active or inactive during certain
Blood catecholamine levels – examine the chemical levels of what is in your
blood to make an inference about your psychological state.
