What are feedback modes designed to do?

Audiovisual feedback modes within Soma NPT are designed to give an athlete live performance feedback and Increase or decrease punishment sensitivity or reward sensitivity. Research has shown that athletes who are punishment sensitive and not reward sensitive, are more mentally tough. This means that an athlete who is mentally tough will adapt their behaviour to avoid a negative stimulus such as a negative tone or a negative visual stimulus.


So by applying a negative audio or visual stimulus, you can increase an athlete's punishment sensitivity and manipulate their behaviour to responses. You can also apply a positive audio or visual stimulus to increase their reward sensitivity, which may be useful for athletes that are really struggling with certain tasks because it gives them some positive reinforcement.
