SCIENCE BRIEFS

Enhancing Motivation in Sport

By David E. Conroy, PhD

Psychologists have been supporting the U.S. Olympic mission formally since the 1980s and a team of sport psychologists will be on-hand in Italy this month to continue the work they have been doing for the past 4 years with some of the country’s finest athletes.

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S COLUMN

  • Growth for Science
    Funding for research in the social, behavioral, and economic sciences could also be diverted to basic physical science and engineering research. This would be a tragedy--not because "our" fields of science would suffer, but because the science our nation needs most urgently would suffer.
