The Attention of Expert Boxers

(IRB#: IRB_00155440)

Making instant decisions is important in a variety of settings, including sports such as boxing. When time is limited, decision-making success is strongly determined by things that influence immediate attention. Research is needed to learn whether expert boxers show better attention skills compared to untrained persons. The information we learn may aid future patients.
