    The Athlete Advantage: The impact of sport participation on auditory and visual reaction times

    Reaction time is the amount of time it takes an individual to process information following a stimulus (Haen Whitmer, 2021). An aspect of daily life that heavily relies on reaction times is sports. Sports can be categorized into two different categories: open skill-dominated (OSD) and closed skill-dominated (CSD). OSD sports, such as football, occur in changing environments and athletes must react and make decisions quickly to perform well. CSD sports, such as swimming, occur in unchanging environments and athletes must react to a single stimulus quickly. In this research, participants reacted to visual stimuli and combined (visual + auditory) stimuli to analyze the effect stimuli type had on reaction time. Participants were subjected to two different types of reaction time tasks, either simple or choice, that measured participants\u27 reaction time when decision-making is involved. A three-way ANOVA suggested that reaction times are affected by stimulus type (visual or combined) (p = 0.004) and reaction time test type (p \u3c 0.001), but not sport participation (p = 0.209). However, overall participation in collegiate athletics was correlated with faster reaction times regardless of test or stimuli type (p = 0.007). Reaction time is one mechanism by which psychologists study perception-action, and this adds to current research surrounding perception-action within sports performance

    Identifying how Home Advantage Manifests in Butler Basketball Using SFA

    Get PDF
    Butler University’s basketball team has been in the Big East Conference since 2013 and is known for having a distinct home court advantage named ‘Hinkle Magic’ by fans. It is of interest to identify how home court advantage affects a Big East team’s ability to play to its full potential for generating wins and what factors are most accurate in measuring this potential. This project will utilize the Stochastic Frontier Approach (SFA) model to identify a team’s efficiency when playing at home vs. away in order to identify when teams meet their potential and if game location has an effect on this result. The model will compute each team’s maximum attainable wins given the strength of their program and compare this threshold to the team’s actual success during the season. Panel data from the Big East 2013-2014 to 2019-2020 seasons will be used in modeling SFA. Measures such as Likelihood ratio test and pseudo R-squared will be used for model evaluation

    0878: The Herald-Dispatch Archives

    Get PDF
    The collection consists of 4 “groupings” of materials that were donated by the Huntington Herald Dispatch when it moved from former offices in Huntington to its newer one in 2021. These groupings include the Herald Dispatch Subject Files, the Name Files, the Photograph Index Files, and the Office Materials (materials boxed up from individual offices in the Herald Dispatch). The first grouping of Subject Files came to the archive in 23 cabinets with 4 drawers each and contains approximately 16,000 folders of subject headings spanning the 1950s to the 2000s. The second grouping of Name Files is in 7 large horizontal filing cabinets with 3 drawers that contain approximately 8,700 files for individuals named in the Herald Dispatch from the same time range as the Subject Files. Both groupings have a folder level index provided below for ease of access. The third grouping in this collection, the Photograph Index Files, contains over a dozen individual plastic boxes and several metal filing cabinets worth of photo negatives taken by Herald Dispatch staff. This part of the selection is not inventoried and is unfortunately not organized into any pattern for locating materials. As such, this portion of the collection is at present not open to the public, but materials can be viewed if advanced notice is given so that archival staff can locate the photographs. The last section consists of all Office Materials found in the process of Special Collections staff gathering materials onsite after the initial collection pickup. These materials do not easily fit into the other classification sections, and are located separately from the rest of the materials. This section of materials includes a variety of sports memorabilia, photographs, sports programs, sports files, WV state documents, Cabell County Board of Education materials, materials relating to the University System of West Virginia, materials on Marshall University, Herald Dispatch administration files, loose articles and designs, VHSs, books, magazines, and other miscellaneous materials
