Quick Reference

A theory that predicts that, as an athlete's arousal increases, his or her attention focus narrows and the narrowing process tends to gate out irrelevant environmental cues first and then, if arousal is high enough, the relevant ones. This results in reducing the availability of important information to an overaroused performer and the overwhelming influx of irrelevant information in an underaroused performer.
