Understanding Minute on Minute (MoM) Cognitive Measures.

Minute on Minute (MoM) breakdowns enable you to monitor an athlete's cognitive and physiological measures over the duration of a cognitive task and help you to identify an athlete's cognitive and physiological breaking points.

Understanding Minute on Minute (MoM) Cognitive Measures.

What is Minute on Minute (MoM)?

Minute on Minute (MoM) breakdowns enable you to monitor an athlete's cognitive and physiological measures over the duration of a cognitive task and help you to identify an athlete's breaking points.

Having deep insights into an athlete's performance is important. Minute on Minute (MoM) breakdowns enable you to see how variable an athlete is performing in every minute of their cognitive training.

Minute on Minute (MoM) enables you to monitor an athletes,

  • Cognitive stress adaptation to the cognitive training plan
  • Consistency across each measurement
  • Cognitive breaking points
  • Physiological breaking points
Minute on Minute (MoM) measures gives you insights to how your athlete obtained the grand mean.

How is MoM calculated?

Grand mean = GM = average of all individual trial responses.

Mean of (minute) means = MoM = unweighted average of minute means.

If the minute means are all based on the same number of trials (e.g., 100 trials) then the mean of means will be identical to the grand mean.

Therefore, if the athlete is consistent throughout the block of trials the MoM will be close to the GM. The more variable the athlete, with very different numbers of trials and correct responses in each minute of the block, then the MoM and GM will diverge.

What data can I view with Minute on Minute (MoM)?

  • Reaction Time
  • Speed
  • Variation
  • Accuracy
  • RCS
  • BPM
  • rMSSD
  • SDNN

What does it look like?

When viewing your athletes cognitive and physiological measures on Soma Analytics you can toggle between the cognitive tasks Grand Mean (GM) and Minute on Minute (MoM) trends.
