  • Information Processing
    • Whiting's Model
      • Input gathered by 3 receptors
        • Exteroceptors
          • extrinsic information (outside body) e.g sound, touch, sight etc.
        • Proprioceptors
          • Internal information from nerve receptors in muscles and joints e.g kinaesthesis
        • Interoceptors
          • Internal information from organs, passed to CNS to control bodily functions
    • Main stages
      • Input
        • AKA stimulus identification. Information from environment via sensory system.
        • Perceptual mechanism used ( interpretation of info.) Irrelevant info filtered via selective attention.
      • Decision making
        • Gathered info used to create motor programme
        • AKA response identification. info processed and decision made based upon previous experience using translatory mechanism.
      • Output
        • Motor programme completed via effector mechanism and muscular system
        • AKA response programming
    • Perception
      • Detection
        • Performer aware of whats going on around them
      • Comparison
        • Performer compares what is happening with past experiences
      • Recognition
        • performer realises whats happening requires a response
    • Welford's model
      • Model
