Journal of Sport and Kinetic Movement
The purpose of the present study is to measure and establish the relationships between analogical transfer ability, psychometric skills, simple reaction time and choice reaction time in performance athletes, basketball players (n= 17). In this sense, a standardized psychological instrument was used to measure each of the four aforementioned dimensions, thus, analogical transfer was measured using the Analogical Transfer test, psychometric skills were measured with the Psychomotor Skills
... naire, the simple reaction time was measured with the Simple Reaction Time Test (SRT), and Choice Reaction Time was measured with the Choices Reaction Time Test (CRT). All instruments were administered via the Cognitrom Psychological Testing Platform CAS++. The conclusions we reached through the study were that there are no significant differences between men and women regarding the levels of reaction time, psychomotor skills and reaction time, but psychomotor skills and analogical transfer ability are significant positive predictors of simple reaction time. Another conclusion was the fact that psychomotor skills and analogical transfer ability are not significant predictors of choices reaction time.
