Ch a p t er Human Brain Plasticity, Sports, and Sports Injuries This chapter is a brief review of some basic brainbody interactions and neural processes that occur during physical exercise and training.

Thus, because of the intimate brain-body interaction, understanding the brain in sports is of utmost importance. It is a twoway process in that the behavior of the athlete modifies the brain and the brain modifies behavior. There is also interaction between genetic makeup and behavior. Most people assume that genes shape the person: behavior and brain anatomy. Nobel laureate Eric Kandel’s work2 shows that when people learn new skills, their minds also affect which genes in their neurons are transcribed.

As training progresses, the muscles and joints become more coordinated so that they execute the planned order more smoothly, moving exactly according to the directed amount, no more and no less. The execution is precise, fast, clear, efficient, and powerful. This, in turn, solidifies the brain’s circuit. In the presence of injury or a preinjury condition such as musculoskeletal fatigue, the execution is no longer so precisely coordinated nor so fast, clear, efficient, or powerful. In these circumstances, peripheral systems such as muscles and joints cannot execute the commands from the brain according to stored memory, and the subconscious reflexive coordination between the brain and the body is disturbed.
