AbstractThis article reconsiders Case’s theory of central conceptual structures (CCS), examining the relation between working memory and the acquisition of quantitative CCS. The lead hypothesis is ...

Studying the role of individual differences in team sports performance is a challenge. The main problem is having an available measure of individual performance of each member of the team. In particular, in youth sports, where the level of specialization is reactively low, it appears appropriate that this measure takes the entire performance of the athlete into consideration (i.e., that it assesses all of the athlete’s gestures), while maintaining an ecological validity criterion. Therefore, we ...

Abstract This study examines young volleyball players’ learning of increasingly complex attack gestures. The main purpose of the study was to examine the predictive role of a cognitive variable, working memory capacity (or “M capacity”), in the acquisition and development of motor skills in a structured sport. Pascual-Leone’s theory of constructive operators (TCO) was used as a framework; it defines working memory capacity as the maximum number of schemes that can be simultaneously activated by ...

The main purpose of the study was to examine whether M Capacity, as it is defined in Pascual-Leone’s Theory of Constructive Operators as the maximum number of schemes which can be simultaneously activated by attentional resources, is predictive of motor learning – in this case, of the acquisition and development of the “third touch” in volleyball. This hypothesis, supported by some preliminary observations on a small sample of young volleyball players (Bisagno & Morra, 2013), was investigated th...
