About 80% Mental

First off, thanks for stopping by! I hope you can find some useful information here. There's over 250 articles on sports science, sports psychology, neuroscience and evidence-based coaching from the last 5 years. Its kind of an unusual mix of stuff, but it is a collection of topics that all revolve around the mental side of sports.

For many years, I have had an interest in cognitive science and sports science. More specifically, how do we learn to perform all of the individual motor skills necessary to compete in any type of sports? Why do some athletes outperform others? Why do athletes make "mental errors" or "poor decisions" during a game or competition?

Finding answers to these questions is the fun part for me and I'm happy to share what I learn with you.

Also, for even more fun, I create and grow the online presence for several sports performance/cognitive science companies with custom blog articles and social media development, including:
Axon Sports

Are you a scientist, author or publicist trying to get a research paper or book in front of a global sports audience?   I'd be happy to connect you with the 80% Mental crowd.

Oh, why the name you ask? As Yogi Berra clearly articulated, "Baseball is 80% mental, and the other half is physical." Close enough for us.
