Imagery-Assisted Virtual Reality for Athletic Training

Lindsay Ross-Stewart, PhD, is the leading researcher of imagery-assisted virtual reality in both athletics and medicine. As part of her applied research at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, she worked with the Cougars baseball team to study how athletes can use imagery-assisted virtual reality to increase their confidence and performance. The program required athletes to watch video of themselves via a smart phone application in virtual reality goggles, and practice a guided imagery script as many as three times a day. Results showed significant changes in the players’ psychological practice skills, including automaticity, relaxation, self-talk and imagery, as well as psychological performance skills.

This series explores the latest science and technology news in the St. Louis area.
