Information for regulating action in sport : metastability and emergence of tactical solutions under ecological constraints
Hristovski, Robert, Davids, Keith W., & Araujo, Duarte (2009) Information for regulating action in sport : metastability and emergence of tactical solutions under ecological constraints. In Araujo, Duarte, Ripoll, Hubert, & Raab, Markus (Eds.) Perspectives on Cognition and Action in Sport. Nova Science Publishers, Inc., Hauppauge, N.Y. , pp. 43-57.
The aims of this chapter are twofold. First, we show how experiments related to nonlinear dynamical systems theory can bring about insights on the interconnectedness of different information sources for action. These include the amount of information as emphasised in conventional models of cognition and action in sport and the nature of perceptual information typically emphasised in the ecological approach. The second aim was to show how, through examining the interconnectedness of these information sources, one can study the emergence of novel tactical solutions in sport; and design experiments where tactical/decisional creativity can be observed. Within this approach it is proposed that perceptual and affective information can be manipulated during practice so that the athlete's cognitive and action systems can be transposed to a meta-stable dynamical performance region where the creation of novel action information may reside.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
