As the field of cognitive psychology, neuropsychology, and neurology take shape, scientists and practitioners alike are reaping the benefits of more sophisticated understandings of brain functions and processes in sport performance. Technologies designed at assessing and training cognitive abilities such as complex reaction time, pattern recognition, and decision-making are being rapidly developed and deployed in performance training settings. Ethical and professional issues such as developing and maintaining competency, emerging science issues related to disclosures of benefits and risks, and practical matters of integrating technology training with teams and organizations will be discussed.
