Mental rotation (MR) is a spatial skill considered to be a key-component of intellectual ability. Studies have suggested that the response time (RT) in a MR task (MRt) might be influenced, with possible gender differences, by the practice of a physical activity (PA) and depending on the plane, direction, degrees of the MR and the frame of reference...

Objective: The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of a Play Lü inter-team competition exergame on adolescents’ moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) and situational interest (SI). Materials and Methods: A total of 110 students ( M age = 13.7 ± 1.1, 12-16 years, 53.7 % girls, M BMI = 19.9 ± 3.2) from a secondary school located in...

Purpose: Cooperation and competition are two elements explaining the motivation for adolescents to engage in exergame play within a social environment. Experimental results have suggested that exergames involving inter-team competition may elicit greater psychosocial and physiological benefits than single-player exergames (Moss et al., 2018). Howev...

Si plusieurs études ont montré un effet positif des jeux vidéo actifs (JVA) sur la motivation et l’activité physique des adolescents lors d’affrontements en un contre un par rapport à un jeu seul, très peu de recherches se sont intéressées au mode multi-joueurs avec affrontements inter-équipes. Le récent dispositif Play Lü propose justement un mode...

The present study aimed at examining the effect of mental calculation and number comparison on motor performance measured as the movement time of a fast manual-pointing movement. Three experiments, involving a total number of 65 undergraduate subjects, examined the effect of mental subtraction (complex) and, respectively, of (a) mental addition (si...

Conference Paper

Several everyday activities (e.g.: shopping or board games) require mathematical abilities (Lefevre et al., 2009). These abilities may be grounded in sensorimotor experiences such as finger-counting (e.g.: Berteletti et al., 2015; Wasner et al., 2014). This is supported by experimental results showing that mental calculation in adults involve cereb...

La relation entre le langage et l'action motrice est matière à débat depuis plusieurs années. Le développement des techniques d'imagerie cérébrale a permis aujourd'hui de cerner avec beaucoup plus de précision la nature de cette relation, ce qui a donné lieu à une abondante littérature traitant de ce sujet. La quasi-totalité de ces études ont exami...

Interdisciplinarity is often presented as a significant element of sport science. We present here the results of an investigation conducted in four European Sport Science Research Centres applying interdisciplinarity. Four main dimensions, that we have called "forms", have been investigated. The "scientific", "organisational", "academic" and "socie...

Sport science is a relatively recent domain of research born from the interactions of different disciplines related to sport. According to the European College of sport science ( http://sport-science.org ): "scientific excellence in sport science is based on disciplinary competence embedded in the understanding that its essence lies in its multi- a...

The height of a maximum Vertical Squat Jump (VSJ) reflects the useful power produced by a jumper during the push-off phase. In turn this partly depends on the coordination of the jumper's segmental rotations at each instant. The physical system constituted by the jumper has been shown to be very sensitive to perturbations and furthermore the moveme...
Article
Abstracts of European College of Sports Science conferences (1995-2014) are studied. The number of abstracts has been increasing regularly (+90 per year). This rise is in recent years largely due to extra-European countries. The magnitude and accumulation of the different topics of discussion are examined. An operational criterion determines four s...

En sciences du sport, l’interdisciplinarite est souvent envisagee comme une dimension constitutive dont l’actualisation est cependant a caracteriser. Pour concourir a cette caracterisation, nous avons etudie quatre Centres de recherche europeens en sciences du sport affichant un engagement dans/vers l’interdisciplinarite. Les informations recueilli...
Article
Previous studies provided evidence of a relationship between mental rotation (MR) and motor processes in children and adults. There is no direct evidence, however, that MR ability is a reliable predictor of success for motor performance. After completion of an MR test, the motor performance of 7- to 8-year-old and 11- to 12-year-old children was me...

The interaction between language and motor action has been approached by studying the effect of action verbs, kinaesthetic imagery and mental subtraction upon the performance of a complex movement, the squat vertical jump (SVJ). The time of flight gave the value of the height of the SVJ and was measured with an Optojump® and a Myotest® apparatuses....

Celles que nous appelons les neurosciences sont un ensemble interdisciplinaires de multiples connaissances qui étudient les étroites relations existantes entre les fonctions du mental et celles du corps. L’influence de celui-ci dans le bien-être de celui-là et souvent dans l’amélioration de certaines pathologies, notamment cardiovasculaires, mais a...
Article
Various perceptual stimuli are capable to modulate motor actions as several studies have shown in the recent years. In particular, the discovery of mirror neurons has shown the possibility that the visualization of moving objects or individuals may have an effect in improving the locomotion of an attentive observer. The present results show that th...
Article
Considering that body and mind are a single entity, a theoretical approach is presented that binds motor action, idea and thought. Following this approach based on some axiomatic standpoints, action appears to be pre-eminent with relation to thought and probably idea. An experiment was performed to show that, following the approach; the body functi...
Article
Several results in the literature show that motor imagery, language production, and motor execution share the same or closely related brain motor cortical areas. The present study aimed at studying the possible influence of specific action verb on the performance of a squat jump. French and Lebanese subjects, novice in mental imagery, performed ver...
Article
Previous studies found that children are able to perform mental rotation (MR) tasks with a gender difference from the age of 4. More recently, gender differences in MR were also reported in infancy. However, different kinds of paradigms and stimuli were used. The present study investigates whether the Vandenberg and Kuse Mental Rotation Test (VMRT;...

Article
Temporal congruence between motor imagery and motor performance was evaluated in 30 elementary school children (7 and 8-year-olds) and 61 middle school children (11 and 12-year-olds), using the “Harre's Chase” obstacle-course [Harre, D. (1976). Trainingslehre. Berlin: Sportverlag]. It is made of successive elementary actions including running, roll...

Mental rotation (MR) is improved through practice and high MR ability is correlated to success in anatomy learning. We investigated the effects of improving the MR ability on the Vandenberg and Kuse MR test performance and the consequences on learning functional human anatomy. Methods: Forty-eight students were assigned into three groups: MR group...

This study examined whether providing verbal instructions plus demonstration and task repetition facilitates the early acquisition of a sport skill for which learners had a prior knowledge of the individual motor components. After one demonstration of the task by an expert, 18 novice skaters practiced a figure skating jump during a 15-min. period....
