A36 Inducing the Intention Phenomenon in a Computer Based Simulation Environment
Targeting is a skill that is used in many sports and other activities. The electroencephalogram (EEG) has previously been used to measure target sports [1-4]. The intention phenomenon is indicated by the pre-shot alpha in the EEG . This paper details the design of a computer based simulation to induce the intention phenomenon. The simulation consisted of a targeting task under three different targeting conditions - no bias, constant bias, and variable bias. Twelve participants were involved in the study and their EEG was measured during the targeting tasks. The results indicated that intention could be induced using a computer based simulation.
