Advancing mental imagery research from an interdisciplinary sport science perspective: A commentary on Frank et al. (2023)

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debatepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

Frank et al.’s (2023) perceptual–cognitive scaffold meaningfully extends the cognitive action architecture approach and we support this interdisciplinary advancement. However, there are theoretical and applied aspects that could be further developed within this research to maximise practical impact across domains such as sport. In particular, there is a need to consider how these mechanisms (1) might critically inform or relate to other prominent theories within sport (e.g., constrained action hypothesis and ecological approaches) and, (2) reflect the real-world challenges experienced by athletes. With these ideas in mind, this commentary aims to stimulate discussion and enhance the translational application of Frank et al.’s research.
