Physiological and cognitive effects of acute stress in high risk professions

The project is a collaboration with Mats Dahl and Roger Johansson, Department of psychology, Per-Anders Fransson and Johan Bertilsson, Department of clinical sciences, and Peter Fredriksson, Police academy at Växjö, Linnéus University. The project aims to investigat how acute stress influences decision making, memory, motor performance, communication and coordination in police and military personnel when faced with situations where violence or threats of violence occur. Our goal is to increase the understanding of the interaction between physical and psychological reactions to acute stress, its effect on performance, and ultimately improve training and preparation for those occupations that are faced with acute danger.


The project is a collaboration with Eva Ageberg and Niklas Cederström, Department of health sciences, and aims at improving physiotherapeutic rehabilitation training in sports injuries. Through combing mental simulation or motor imagery and physical rehabilitation training we intend to increase the effect of the training for a quicker, more effective, and more functional return to physical activity.
