The sport and exercise psychology research group has the capacity to examine the effect of social, environmental and psychological interventions on participants’ cognitive, affective and behavioural responses when engaged in more ecologically-valid motor or sport tasks.
The Lode cycle ergometers of the group are connected to computers allowing for the manipulation and display of objective/bogus performance feedback while simultaneously recording objective performance during individual/team competitive races. Simple physiological functions (heart rate and blood pressure) can be measured in parallel.
The Focus Group Room is a multifunctional space among others used for group and individual interviews, information sessions with participants, and questionnaire completion. The data acquisition and analysis systems (both for laboratory and field-based research) are state-of-the-art and suited for advanced statistical analyses of complex data.
