  • Response times can be improved by...
    • Warm up - ensuring that the cardio-respiratory, vascular and neuromuscular systems are prepared
    • Concentration/ selective attention - in simple reaction time situations, you focus on the relevant stimulus and ignore everything else - this limits the information that you need to process
  • Mental rehearsal - this enables the performer to respond to the correct cues and respond to the correct stimuli. It also activates the neuromuscular system. Aswell as have an effect on the control of arousal levels

      • Warm up - ensuring that the cardio-respiratory, vascular and neuromuscular systems are prepared
      • Concentration/ selective attention - in simple reaction time situations, you focus on the relevant stimulus and ignore everything else - this limits the information that you need to process
  • Experience - playing the activity enhances the performer's awareness of the probability of a particular stimuli occurring
    • Practice - the more often a stimulus is responded to the shorter the reaction time. If enough practice is carried out then the response becomes automatic and requires little attention
      • Physical fitness - the fitter you are, the quicker you will be
        • Cue detection - analysing an opponent's play to anticipate what they are going to do
          • Stimulus - response compatibility - if the response you are expected to make to the stimulus is the one you would normally make you will react quicker than with a different response
