Workshop title:

‘Assessing exercise-induced stress on cardio-respiratory & neuro-cognitive responses’

About the workshop:

Motivation, effective training, 360-degree scientific support, nutrition, tactical planning, and other aspects play a role in sporting success. India’s performance in the recently concluded Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022 where India won 61 medals, Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics where India won 7 medals including one precious gold medal won by Neeraj Chopra in the Javelin throw, and an incredible 19 medals achievement in Paralympics, signifies India’s progress towards a leading country in sports. This is inevitable that this journey could not be possible without sports science support, proper training, and recovery management. To compete and level with the internationally leading countries in the sports arena, it is necessary for Indian support staff, aspiring professionals, and students to develop skills by using the latest technologies and advanced tools to analyze athletes and provide necessary suggestions to improve performance. To cater to this modern era of a scientific approach to sports, the Department of Sports Science and Yoga of Ramakrishna Mission Vivekananda Educational and Research Institute (RKMVERI), Belur Math, West Bengal is organizing a pre-conference workshop on ‘Assessing exercise-induced stress on cardio-respiratory & neuro-cognitive responses’ under the aegis of APPICON 2022 and APPI.

The first part of the workshop will cover an important practical skill in conducting a cardio-respiratory stress test on a treadmill and monitoring the real-time breath-by-breath cardio-respiratory responses till exhaustion. Changes in the key parameters like the volume of oxygen consumption (VO2), volume of carbon dioxide production (VCO2), minute ventilation (VE), respiratory frequency (Rf), substrate utilization parameters and etc. during a graded exercise task will be monitored, analyzed and explained. The candidates will also analyze the post-exercise recovery responses and will learn how to interpret those data. The significance of these tests in exercise physiology and the importance to optimize those parameters to improve sports performance will also be discussed. This part will be organized in the Exercise physiology & Clinical evaluation laboratory at the Department of Sports Science and Yoga, RKMVERI.

The second part of the workshop will be on the acquisition of electroencephalographic (EEG) recording in a subject performing a cognitive task and on biofeedback training. Biofeedback training is a new way to monitor and control the subtle changes happening in our body, and often to improve physical performance and health conditions. This training is very popular nowadays in sports which inculcates the athlete’s arousal regulation skill, maintaining focus and staying relaxed throughout the competition. In this part, the candidates will see the changes happening in the brain waves during a task, will understand the EEG wave patterns, and will also monitor a biofeedback training session. This part will be organized in the Neurophysiology and cognition laboratory at the Department of Sports Science and Yoga, RKMVERI.
