Activation Process of Brain Perception during the Serve Action of Table Tennis Players

Jiang An


With a view to consolidating and strengthening the sports level of Chinese table tennis players, this study focuses on the activation process of brain perception in serving. Based on the principles of kinematics and sports biomechanics, 3dsMax2012 software is used to simulate pictures, and active coaches and second-class athletes are asked to screen out pictures showing the actions could be employed to send out side back spin. The composition characteristics in this study indicate that the number of athletes’ activated neurons that are sensitive to stimulus features is larger. In the perception stage of information with a single feature, table tennis athletes have a higher degree of activation of the cerebral cortex, and are very sensitive to the physical characteristics of the stimulus related to the specific sports.
