Entraînement de l'attention visuo-spatiale (CVSA) de gardiens de but de football de haut niveau : mise en oeuvre par la méthode du MOT (Multiple Object Tracking)

Abstract : Perception is an important factor in decision making, and goalkeepers must simultaneously process multiple moving information to take decision. For this purpose, goalkeepers use their peripheral vision to take information while watching at the ball, used as a fixation point (Williams et al,1998). This quality, called Covert Visuo-Spatial Attention (CVSA) (Posner et al, 1980) is a capacity to committing attention to a position other than the fixation point. This task has been recognized as an effective tool to improve perceptual-cognitive qualities (Faubert et al, 2012). MOT is a complex task involving several parts of one’s visual field, in which participants must follow a subset of ball-targets among a larger number of balls (distractors). A 13-week training program, based on Multiple Object Tracking (MOT) (Pylyshyn et al, 1988), has been led to improve CVSA of four 1st French league goalkeepers. Participants were tested on two tests: a “simple MOT” (MOT) and a MOT with a point fixation (MOT Track). Resultsshow an improvement of goalkeepers’ performance on MOT Track (p< 0.01) while noimprovement is found with the MOT. Results also show that the task with visual pivot is more difficult than the “simple task”. However, these results must be confirmed with a larger population. One of perspectives is to get closer to the field using virtual reality.
