The brain of fatigued athletes works differently during functional balance tests used to determine sports injury risk

Researchers from the Human Physiology and Sports Physiotherapy research group at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel have shown that physical fatigue affects an athlete's brain when performing a functional balance test. The accuracy with which a representative group of recreational athletes responded to a novel reactive balance test was measured, alongside their response time. They performed this balance test, which could be used to determine the risk of injury, both before and after heavy exercise. Their brain activity was also mapped.
