Analysis of the Characteristics of Thinking Control during Basketball Free Throw Based on Electroencephalogram

Jiaben Su, Bo Yang


There are important features about the simultaneous exchange of information among different regions of the brain. Synchronization of Electroencephalogram (EEG) signals in different frequency bands is one of the important means to understand the brain. EEG can help discover many unknown details and explain some human behaviours. In addition, it can provide help and theoretical basis for other information research. In order to explore what affects the basketball players’ free-throw percentage, this paper conducts a statistical survey of the free throws by college basketball players. By observing the brain waves which reflect the happy and sad moods of the test subjects in the cerebral cortex, this paper analyses the relationship between brain waves and free throw performance. It discusses the factors that affect the psychological changes of basketball players and the general psychological training methods for them. By learning about the psychological characteristics of basketball players, it analyses the psychological adjustment methods for basketball players in various movements. In summary, this paper analyses the factors that affect the free throw percentage from the psychological, physical and technical perspectives, which provides a better reference for future scientific training.
