Professor Samuele Marcora

As a keynote speaker at ICSPP2017 I will present a psychobiological model of endurance, and how this interdisciplinary knowledge can be applied to improve endurance in humans. This field of research is important because it integrates in an interdisciplinary way what we know about exercise physiology with modern motivation psychology and cognitive neuroscience. Resistance to physical (and mental) fatigue is key for optimal performance and safety of soldiers involved in demanding and prolonged missions, often with poor sleep. I’m most looking forward to ICSPP2017 to interact with an amazing line up of scientists with a research interest in soldier performance, and with the military and civilian personnel that apply this science in the field.
