Sports and Human Performance Research with Dr. Rob Gray

UX principles are applied nearly everywhere, including sports. From analyzing human performance data, communicating recommendations to athletes and coaches, understanding skill acquisition, and shifting to user (athlete)-centered training, the field of sports science research has exploded thanks in part to the proliferation of performance tracking technology.

Chris welcomes to the podcast Dr. Rob Gray from Arizona State University and The Perception & Action Podcast to discuss how human performance research is changing the world of sports.
