Abstract:   (1136 Views)
Introduction: the creativity of the most important goals to achieve optimal performance athletes. This study was conducted to answer the question whether neurofeedback student athlete has an effect on creativity.
Method: This study was quasi-experimental and control groups in the placebo group was used. Sampling was available. The sample consisted of 30 student-athletes in Tabriz. 15 for the experimental group and 15 to the placebo group were selected randomly. In this study area Cz, O1, F3, F4, Fz were recorded and protocols SMR increase, increase and decrease Theta Beta were used. Data were analyzed using analysis of covariance.
Result: Data analysis showed that the mean scores of pre-test and post-test experimental and placebo groups was statistically significant, so that neurofeedback training improves peoplechr('39')s creativity. So that the total score between the two groups in promoting creativity [P<0/05 , F=14/58], fluid [P<0/05 , F=7/29], flexibility [P<0/05 , F=4/83] were significantly different. And between the two groups in the promotion of innovation [P>0/05 , F=2/79] and develop [P>0/05 , F=1/94] not significantly different.
Conclusion: Due to the positive impact of this approach on the creativity of students, athletes, this study showed that neurofeedback can be used as an effective method used to achieve optimum performance.
