CAMACHO, Pablo. Incidental learning value in basketball decision making and control motor. CPD [online]. 2012, vol.12, suppl.1, pp.9-12. ISSN 1989-5879.

In most of the situations arisen in basketball, the player must take decisions at a given moment within a very limited time fraction, whereas, in a simultaneous way, he carries out motor-responses also immediately. They are rapid motor-reactions taken under pressure situations, when he has no time to think twice about it (Kibele, 2006). These decisions seem to be based on intuition (Iglesias, Cárdenas & Alarcón, 2007) and are connected to incidental learning (Poolton, Masters & Maxwell, 2006). In sports like basketball, where time is very reduced and it is necessary to simultaneously give an immediate motor-answer, intuitive processes appear to be able to render the necessary precision and speed (Raab & Johnson, 2008), thus improving an efficient decision-taking under stress conditions, limited time available and little information. Bearing in mind that deliberate and automatic processes work simultaneously, and that, altogether, they form up thinking an action (Betsch, 2008), we favour a model which takes into consideration both of them, since, as per Sun, Slusarz & Terry (2005), incidental and intentional processes do coexist and they interact in order to arrive to learning and performance.

Palabras clave : Incidental learning; decision making; motor control; performance; basketball.
