Why is visualisation carried out?
Visualisation is part of many elite athletes’ training regimes because it is perceived to work.
Several empirical studies have shown that the brain does not differentiate between a real memory and an imagined (visualised) one. This suggests that we can condition our brain to store what we visualise as if it was ‘real’ and that actual neural networks in the brain associated with the experience may be created. This topic examines the phenomenon as it relates to sport.
