The current study aimed at investigating the acute effects of high-intensity cardiovascular exercise on motor performance and learning of a fine motor task and associated changes in oscillatory brain activity via electroencephalography (EEG). The results revealed no improvements in the fine motor learning task due to high-intensity exercise. Interestingly specific changes in the alpha- and especially beta-frequency bands emerged over ipsilateral sensorimotor regions. Future studies are required to investigate whether these changes play a functional role in the acute effects of cardiovascular exercise on motor learning. Journal link
Keynote on pedagogical quality in physical education and training.
As part of the DOBS (Dozierende Bewegung und Sport at (Swiss) Universities of Teacher Education) expert workshops on quality in the education and training of physical education teachers, Dr. Kathrin Kohake gave a keynote lecture on November 26. Entitled "Pedagogical Quality in Physical Education and Training - Observing, Evaluating, Making Progress", she presented an observation tool for process quality in teaching-learning contexts as well as empirical results from its use in junior sports. The workshop took place in hybrid form and was hosted by the University of Teacher Education St.Gallen.
"Sport in Culture and Society" is the title of volume two of the "Handbook of Sport and Sport Science". This is the three-volume basic work published online by Springer Nature as a "reference work", a "handbook of the highest order", as Springer's advertising puts it.

On 24.11. from 2.30 p.m. to 4.00 p.m., the event "Women into science?! What's in it for me to do a doctorate?" will take place on zoom. The event is primarily aimed at female students of sports science and psychology who are considering starting a doctorate after their studies. For further information click here.
In the book, Dr. Markus Jürgens develops a video-based seminar to promote professional vision in inclusive physical education.The perception concept of equal participation in games in physical education, which is differentiated and evaluated in the work, can be used specifically in physical education teacher training for the perception of classroom situations.
