'Buzzer beaters' and 'barn burners': the effects on enjoyment of watching the game go 'down to the wire'

, : 'Buzzer beaters' and 'barn burners': the effects on enjoyment of watching the game go 'down to the wire'. Journal of Sport and Social Issues 18(4): 326-339

Prior research on the effects of being kept in suspense about the outcome of a sports contest on spectators' enjoyment of the sporting event has yielded ambiguous findings, which the present investigation was designed to clarify. A high school football game in the USA was videotaped professionally. The tapes were edited, and play-by-play and colour commentary was added, so as to create a suspenseful version and a non-suspenseful version of the game.

The aminergic neurons in the locus coeruleus are known to cease firing during rapid eye movement sleep. Since electrical stimulation of locus coeruleus reduced, while carbachol stimulation increased rapid eye movement sleep and gamma-aminobutyric...
