Finding innovative ways to achieve performance advantages for athletes is one of the strengths of the NSW Institute of Sport, and the recent use of neurotracker technology is a perfect example.
23 year-old Snowboard Cross athlete Josh Miller has incorporated time spent in the NSWIS “Mind Room” into his preseason training regime, using emerging technology to positively impact his decision-making.
Miller has since recorded his career best performance, placing 20th at the Snowboard Cross World Cups in Cerro Catedral in Argentina, and the athlete attributes his success in part to this training.
Watch the video below to find out more, and hear from NSWIS Sports Psychologist Dr Mike Martin on what the Mind Room is all about.
