Neuroscience of the Free Throw: Insights from Motor Control Theory
In this light-hearted webinar, Dr. William Cullinan, Dean of the College of Health Sciences and Director of Marquette’s Integrative Neuroscience Research Center, will discuss implications from brain science on successful free-throw shooting. Dr. Cullinan will present the cases of two former Marquette men’s basketball players to illustrate extremes in motor styles. Subtopics such as ‘muscle memory’, priming, and the effects of stress/anxiety on shooting success will also be covered. If you are a student or fan of the game, you are guaranteed to come away better informed. And if a basketball player, you may well raise your free throw shooting percentage significantly.
