A discussion with Amit Katwala, senior writer for Sport Magazine and author of the new book: The Athletic Brain: How Neuroscience is Revolutionizing Sport and Can Help You Perform Better. We discuss topics including how the brains of elites athletes are different than normal people, some methods teams are using to short cut this process with brain training, ways you can trick yourself into having greater endurance, how to better diagnose concussion, the idea of sporting IQ, and examples of sports psychology at work in the recent Olympic games.
