Sample text

Athletes first learn coordinated motor skills through conscious mental processes and physical repetition. The learned skills are stored in the form of shortterm memory. Short-term memory is created by a functional, nonstructural modification in the ability of neurons to signal each other. For example, the neurons representing a group of muscles signal each other, after proper training, with clearer, faster, and stronger communication. Further training transforms this short-term memory into long-term unconscious memory in the synaptic connections of different brain systems.

Thus, because of the intimate brain-body interaction, understanding the brain in sports is of utmost importance. It is a twoway process in that the behavior of the athlete modifies the brain and the brain modifies behavior. There is also interaction between genetic makeup and behavior. Most people assume that genes shape the person: behavior and brain anatomy. Nobel laureate Eric Kandel’s work2 shows that when people learn new skills, their minds also affect which genes in their neurons are transcribed.
