As part of the School of Science and Technology SHAPE Research Centre Seminar Series, Dr. Ruth Boat and Dr. Noel Kinrade, Nottingham Trent University presents: The Effects of Prior Self-Control Exertion on Subsequent Exercise Performance & Keep Calm and Carry On: Examining the attentional processes underlying skill failure and impaired decision-making.

Abstract for Ruth

My research broadly covers the role of self-control in sport and exercise performance. In the first half of the presentation, I will provide a brief overview of a number of studies that have explored the effects of self-control depletion on subsequent exercise performance. The second half of the presentation will discuss potential mechanisms that may explain the self-control processes. Finally, I will discuss avenues for future research, as well as intervention strategies to reduce the impact of self-control depletion on subsequent exercise performance.

Abstract for Noel

My research broadly focuses on attentional processes underlying skill failure and factors influencing decision-making. More specifically, it aims to examine dispositional influences on performance and also to explore the underlying mechanisms of skill failure and susceptibility to biased decision-making in a variety of domains. This research uses a variety of measures such as video simulations, questionnaires, eye-tracking, performance analysis and behavioural responses. I will discuss past, present and future research around choking under pressure, falls in the elderly and referee and umpire’s decision making.
