Example text

All physical activities in sports and exercise modify the brain systems, first consciously and then unconsciously. Athletes first learn coordinated motor skills through conscious mental processes and physical repetition. The learned skills are stored in the form of shortterm memory. Short-term memory is created by a functional, nonstructural modification in the ability of neurons to signal each other. For example, the neurons representing a group of muscles signal each other, after proper training, with clearer, faster, and stronger communication.

This prestretch makes the muscle spindle highly sensitive to even small degrees of stretch. If the muscle stretches enough that there is a risk of rupture, the spindle responds by sending a signal to the muscle to contract. This keeps the muscle from being injured. In response to that stretch, the sensory neurons send action potentials to the spinal cord, which then activates the α-motor neurons of the motor unit in the same muscles to increase the force of contraction to overcome stretching. After the information is sent to the spinal cord from the sensory neurons associated with muscle spindles, the same signals continue to travel up to higher parts of the central nervous system, supplying the brain with continuous feedback about the exact length of the muscle and the rate at which that length is changing.

If one part of the connection fires more slowly than others, as in the case of musculoskeletal fatigue from overtraining or injuries, the coordinated movement is disturbed or even destroyed. Athletes should perform only with coordinated and well-balanced physical systems and without pain or injuries. Human beings have about 100 billion neurons. Each neuron can have as many as 1300 synapses (connections) with other neurons. The human cortex alone has 30 billion neurons and is capable of making 1 million billion synaptic connections.
