Abstract

An approach for an integrative analysis of biomechanic and psychologic data is presented. Kinematic movement patterns as well as mental representation of the spike of male volleyball players have been studied to analyze structural interrelationships of cognitive and biomechanical measures. A high congruence of the results of cognitive and biomechanical analysis can be stated. Future research will focus on adaptations of mental representation and performance following practical and mental training, respectively.
