Platypus Neuro is partnering with the Leaders Performance Institute to advance awareness and understanding of how applied neuroscience optimizes peak performance in elite sports, extends pro athlete’s career longevity, and facilitates better talent selection.
What is the Leaders Performance Institute? The international “Leaders” membership-only community includes over 800 elite sport performance practitioners, teams and federations that range from the NBA to the AFL and Premier League.
As part of our partnership with Leaders, we’ve created a series of articles that are a mix of scientifically-validated research, personal insights from our leadership team, and current examples of why applied neuroscience promises to be a game-changer for elite sports.
The ongoing #Headstart series of bi-monthly articles from the Platypus Institute can be found online at Leaders’ Sport Performance Hub. This 8-part series is scheduled to wrap up before January of 2020. These articles are cataloged in chronological order for your convenience.
