Push athletes to their mental limits with consequences applied to modify their decision-making behaviour.
Error detection mode (EDM) allows coaches to objectively assess an athlete's behaviour to incorrect responses.
Audiovisual feedback modes are designed to give performance feedback to an athlete to manipulate their behaviour and optimize cognitive performance. The feedback that is layered on top of the cognitive task will determine the effect on the athlete and cognitive training task.
When you are monitoring an athlete's cognitive and physiological data trends you need to take into consideration multiple measures as well as the sessional load.
