The Science of Sports Vision Training

 

The practice of sports vision training has evolved due to a better understanding of how the visual system works and new technologies that allow us to access information and train in natural contexts. Dr. Greg Appelbaum, Ph.D., and his team at the Duke University School of Medicine’s Human Performance Optimization Lab, are interested in how they can optimize human performance using neuroscience-based tools. Some of these tools expand into the realm of virtual reality and augmented reality.

Appelbaum’s combination of laboratory-based research and real-world research is used to advance the science of Sports Vision training. “A lot of these new tools, especially these digital tools, allow us to collect data in context that you wouldn’t think of as a research context,” Appelbaum said.

Can Sports Vision training play a role in athlete safety? What sports most benefit from this type of training? Is it expensive? And how is technology like Reflexion’s adding an advanced layer of data to neuro-fitness? Dr. Appelbaum answered these questions and revealed a host of training methods and tools athletes use to improve areas such as depth perception and anticipatory timing.
