Human performance science: Applications from high performance sport

Research output: Contribution to conferencePosterpeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

The need for a multi-disciplinary approach to human performance enhancement has been established (Richardson, 2012), including development and application of performance enhancing practices to facilitate both physiological and cognitive improvements. The integration of research, development and application to deliver innovative solutions to real world human performance problems represents a challenging and exciting opportunity (Jones & Mehr, 2007; Bishop, 2008). This poster highlights some of the research and applied interventions developed within high performance sport settings by the Human Performance Science Research Group at the University of Edinburgh and demonstrates how this can be applied to other high performance domains such as aviation, military, driving, and crime scene examination. Current and future topics for collaboration are also presented. This multi-disciplinary approach combined with a unique understanding of high performance environments can generate a wide range of methods and strategies for optimising training and human performance.
