The influence of stress and energy level on learning muscle relaxation during gross-motor task performance using electromyographic feedback



The influence of stress and energy level on learning muscle relaxation during gross-motor task performance using electromyographic feedback



Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback 31(3): 243-252



The aim was to investigate the influence of mood on learning muscle relaxation. Self-reported mood (assessed by the Stress-Energy Checklist) at baseline was related to learning muscle relaxation induced by electromyographic feedback training during performance of a gross-motor task. Feedback training was provided either intermittently (Intermittent Feedback Task, IF, n=12) or continuously (Continuous Feedback Task, CF, n=9). Results reveal a negative correlation between the learning effect at short-term and energy dimension for the IF Task. It can be concluded that mood experienced prior to a learning task is relevant for the learning effect and this effect may be dependent on the schedule of feedback used.
