The Brain Science Behind Lin-Sanity

Experts who study sports psychology say Lin has performed another remarkable feat — blocking out outside pressures to allow his athletic skills to shine.

“How we think about whether we are going to succeed or fail changes whether or not our brain supports our skills,” said Sian Beilock, author of the book “ “Choke: What the Secrets of the Brain Reveal About Getting It Right When You Have To” ” and a psychology professor at the University of Chicago. “Focusing on what you want to achieve rather than why you’ve failed in the past prepares you to perform at your best. When you are focused on failing, often times you try to control every aspect of what you are doing. You essentially screw yourself up.”
