As sports nutrition is becoming more and more an interesting and in-demand field in scientific study, venues to expose and encourage developments have been established. There are several journals related to sports nutrition. The following are some examples:
International Journal of Sport Nutrition & Exercise Metabolism
IJSNEM offers information on sports nutrition and exercise metabolism by publishing original scientific investigations, scholarly reviews and articles which focus on the application of the principles of biochemistry, physiology, and nutrition to sport and exercise.
Although sport nutrition today is a distinct academic and applied field of work, it receives input fromand makes contributions tofields like nutrition, physiology, biochemistry, psychology, clinical medicine, and the sport and exercise sciences.
These perspectives are welcomed and encouraged in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism (IJSNEM). The journal now serves as a forum for the publication of scholarly and applied work regarding the nutritional, biochemical, and molecular aspects of exercise science.
Original researches with human subjects are given top priority in IJSNEM but relevant researches with experimental animals are also submitted. Case studies showing systematic, rather than casual observation conducted with appropriate instrumentation will be accepted. Articles with clinical application are also included. Aside from these, editorials, digests of related articles from other fields, research notes, and reviews of books, videos, and other media releases are offered in the journal.
International Journal of Sports Physiology and Performance
IJSPP is an international peer-reviewed journal focused on sports physiology and performance. It aims to advance the knowledge of sport and exercise physiologists, sports-performance researchers, and other sports scientists by examining and publishing practical and research aspects of sports physiology and sports performance.
Articles in sport physiology and related disciplines that have connections with enhancing sport performance, preventing decrements in performance, or enhancing recovery of athletes are featured in IJSPP. The journal publishes original research reports, invited reviews, commentaries, technical reports, case studies. There is also an editorial section.
Usual topics in IJSPP include team sports, individual sports, performance aspects of environmental physiology, applied sports nutrition, strength and conditioning, biomedical science, and applications of sport technology. Readership include sport scientists, sport physicians, coaches, academic researchers, students, and related professionals.
Controlled experimental and observational researches as long as they are comprehensive or systematic and appropriate standards of scientific methodology and analysis are met are welcome.
Motor Control (MC)
Motor Control is an international journal has been created for information exchange on the control of human movement through a lifespan. The journal provides reports to keep readers abreast of current developments in the field of motor control as well as motor disorders.
MC publishes various types of research papers: clinical experimental, modeling and theoretical studies. Varied disciplines complement each other in this publication: biomechanics, kinesiology, neurophysiology, neuroscience, psychology, physical medicine, and rehabilitation. Aside from research papers, review articles, quick communications, commentaries, target articles, and book reviews are also featured.
Contribution to the understanding of movement control should be clearly demonstrated in an article for it to be published.
Each issue of Quest examines critical issues facing physical educators in secondary schools and research developments in the sport sciences and other sub-disciplines of human movement. Theoretical explorations to applied studies in this journal synthesize research to help advance the field of physical activity.
Quest does not publish original research reports on professional development of physical education but welcomes articles that are based on, complement, or review empirical research related to it. Quest considers both theoretical and practical articles. Readers includes academicians, teachers, and administrators
The Journal of Applied biomechanics
(JAB) is a quarterly journal dedicated to the study of human biomechanics in sport, exercise, and rehabilitation. The reader will find research articles, clinical studies, and other pertinent information highlighting current advances in biomechanics in each issue.
The effect and control of forces that act on and are produced by the human body are highlighted in JAB. Studies related to modeling and human movement simulation and to the effects of internal and external forces like nutrition on body structures during skill development and rehabilitation are also appropriate.
Original research reports, invited review papers, and “target” articles on selected current issues in the field are published. Jab also contains book reviews, technical notes, an editorial section, and other special features.

* There are two demos in this talk that you can try at home exploring how we perceive and recollect visual scenes:
1. Image distance demo:
You are given a 3 second countdown before seeing a quick sequence of two pictures of the same object, divided briefly by a visual mask. The challenge is to identify whether the second picture is the same view as the first, or whether it’s moved closer or further away. Try it yourself http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdzmNwTLakg&t=6m56s
2. Drawing from memory demo:
You have 15 seconds to look at a picture, which you’ll then be asked to draw, as accurately as possible, from memory. Try it now http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gdzmNwTLakg&t=35m20s
Our memories are our lives, and a fundamental basis of our culture. Collective memoirs of the past both bind society together and shape our potential future. With our brains we can travel through time and space, calling to mind places of significance, evoking images and emotions of past experiences. It’s no wonder, then, that we so desperately fear the prospect of memory loss.
Many regions of the brain are involved in memory, but one of the most critical components is the hippocampus, which plays a crucial role in the formation of long-term memories. Damage to the hippocampus can therefore result in significant memory loss.
In this Friday Evening Discourse, Eleanor Maguire draws on evidence from virtual reality, brain imaging and studies of amnesia to show that the consequences of hippocampal damage are even more far-reaching than suspected, robbing us of our past, our imagination and altering our perception of the world.
Maguire also explains how, despite our beliefs, our memories are not actually as accurate as you might think. In fact, they’re not really even about the past.
This event is part of our all-women line up for Friday Evening Discourses in 2014 as part of our year long celebration of women in science. Find out more here http://www.rigb.org/about/news/spring-2014/2014-friday-evening-discourses
