1 Visual Information Processing in Basketball Jump-Shots Psych 428 Human Motor Skills Spring 2007

2 There are many types of sports that require far aiming tasks. It is obvious that vision plays an important role when the objective of a game is to hit a target and score as much points as possible. In the fast pace sport of basketball, it is quite common to see a player jumping high off the court, and rising over the defender s outreached arms to make a jump shot. Research on basketball had increased in great numbers when the popularity of the sport skyrocketed. Much research has been done on kinematics, biomechanics, and the physics involved in basketball. However, there have only been a few studies that focus primarily on visual control and information processing while aiming at a far target. Previous research in basketball foul-shots (free throws) by Vickers (1996) supported the fact that there was a difference in fixation time of gaze on target between non-expert players and expert players. She defined gaze behavior as the manner in which individuals moved their heads and eyes to take in available information while preparing and executing the free throw. She acquired a total of sixteen elite basketball players as participants. They were split into two equal groups; each participant was classified as an expert or near-expert based on their free-throw shooting percentages during a recent season. Participants were instructed to shoot free throws behind the free-throw line (15 feet from the basket). They took consecutive free throws until they had made 10 hits and 10 misses. Visual information (i.e. gaze) was recorded with a mobile helmet that participants wore. Vickers found that experts fixated their gaze at a target (i.e. backboard or basket) for a longer time before taking the actual shot than near-experts, a phenomenon called quiet eye. She explained her results using a location-suppression hypothesis. The hypothesis stated that during the early phases of the aiming action, a fixation of long duration was needed on a specific target location

3 (i.e. basket or backboard). After the aiming action was performed, vision appeared to be a liability and was suppressed by the performer. Many fans of basketball would argue that the ability to make a high percentage of freethrows would decide the winning team. Foul-shots or free-throws are vital to winning basketball games since every point counts. There have been numerous basketball games in which making foul shots had decided the winning team. Hence, some researchers were interested in training methods for improving these shooting percentages. In efforts to study the foul-shot, Harle and Vickers (2001) studied whether training Quiet Eye in University basketball players would improve free throw shooting accuracy. Quiet Eye was defined as the player s final fixation or gaze behavior on the hoop or backboard prior to the shooting action. Participants were elite female University basketball players who competed in a Canadian league. There were a total of three teams; one team was the experimental group while the other two were the control groups. Shooting percentages of the three teams were recorded over their regular seasons. The experimental group participated in pre-post tests and received 6 weeks of Quiet Eye training lessons from the researchers. During Quiet Eye training sessions, participants received feedback of their pursuit tracking and they were shown how to control their visual information (i.e. gaze) efficiently. An eye tracker system recorded participants gaze, motor, and optical behavior as free throws were performed. Although the equipment was worn as a helmet on participants head, it did not affect the participants and their free throws. Before the Quiet Eye training began, free throw completion percentages were compared between the three groups from a previous season, the experimental group had the lowest percentage (54.14% compared to 67.67% and 61.34%). However, by the end of a following season, pre to post test results showed that the experimental

4 team increased its free throw accuracy in an experimental setting by 11.98%. The experimental group had improved their percentage by 22.62% (from 54.1% to 74.05%) while the control groups percentages changed very slightly. The experimental group significantly improved in the duration of Quiet Eye after their training. Their duration of visual fixation (Q.E.) increased from 782 ms in the pretest to 981 ms in the posttest as free throw shooting percentages increased; indicating that fixation was sustained longer prior to successful shots. However, long target fixations have only been reported in static self-paced task where the positions of both performer and target are stationary (i.e. Foul shots in basketball). During a fast pace action like jump shooting, there is often no time for long fixations and elaborate movement programming. Therefore, in such task, the timing of visual information processing and pick-up are important because opportunities for information pick-up are limited and the detected information has to be used in controlling an unfolding movement (R. Ferraz de Oliveira et al., 2006). In order to look further into this matter, Oudejans, van de Langenberg, and Hutter (2002) investigated vision and shooting style. Generally, there are two types of shooting styles, lowstyle and high-style shooting. The main difference was whether or not the shooter could see the rim from underneath the ball before the ball was released. In low-style shooting, the shooter s hand and ball remain below eye level before the final extension of the elbow in order to shoot the ball. An advantage of this shooting style would be that the final extension of the elbow could be initiated as soon as sufficient information had been processed. A disadvantage would be that information pick-up and processing had to occur before the final extension of the elbow because the shooter would bring the ball up to his or her eye level, blocking his or her own vision of the potential target. On the other hand, in high-style shooting, the ball would be first carried above

5 the shooter s head and then followed by an extension of the elbow to shoot the ball. An advantage of this shooting style would be that the shooter could look at the basket from underneath the ball in the over-head position, which would allow nearly simultaneous visual control of final shooting movement close to release of the ball. A disadvantage would be that the time window for viewing the target becomes narrower. Oudejans and his colleagues noted the fact that Vickers research consisted of female shooters, and female shooters tend to have low-style shooting. Indeed, all the participants (except for one) in Vickers experiment were low-style shooters. Hence, her results and conclusions might have been restricted to the use of low-style only. For this reason, Oudejans and his colleagues wanted to examine more on this matter using basketball jump shooting with high style. They investigated jump shooting performance of 10 expert male shooters with vision occluded either before or after ball and hands moved passed the line of sight. Each participant was randomly tested in four viewing conditions: early vision (vision occluded during the final 350ms before ball release), late vision (vision occluded until the final 350ms), full vision, and no vision. All participants wore a pair of liquid-crystal glasses which manipulated participants vision. The lenses were constructed with liquid crystal cells, powered by an electrical field applied across the two glass plates. Under command of an electronic timing circuit, the experimenter changed the lenses from transparent (open) to translucent (closed). In the open state, lenses would look like clear glass. In contrast, the closed state prevented participants from perceiving visual information. Participants hand and head movements were tracked and recorded using a three-dimensional motion measurement system. The device precisely detected when participants hand and ball passed their line of sight. In response, it triggered the timing

6 mechanism on the goggles. A digital video camera was synchronized with the motion measurement device to thoroughly track participants every move. Participants were asked to dribble, take a step, followed by a jump stop, and then take a jump shot at a marked spot which was approximately 5 meters away from the rim. Participants were instructed to execute the task at their own pace. There were 5 practice trials and 25 experimental trials for each of the four conditions. Oudejans and his colleagues found that late vision shooting condition was just as good as full vision shooting condition, while the early vision shooting condition and no vision condition produced the worst performance. These results supported the researchers hypothesis that for high-style shooters, late viewing is more appropriate for the visual control of the basketball jump shot than early viewing because final error corrections in shooting are possible in late viewing. In effort to go more in depth with Oudejans and his colleagues findings, R. Ferraz de Oliveira, Oudejans, and Beek (2006) studied preferred timing of visual information pick-up in basketball jump-shooting using a similar experimental design. However, their research involved two groups of participants, high-style and low-style shooters. Participants were twelve experienced right-handed basketball players. Seven males had high shooting style; one male and four females had low shooting style. Participants wore a pair of liquid-crystal glasses which manipulated participants vision. During each shot, the glasses were open for 350 ms and closed for 250 ms. These intervals were chosen based on previous research literature. Previous research supported that this occlusion technique used in this study would not affect the task performance. Shooting percentages would not be affected when compared to full vision groups (Oudejans et al, 2002). Similar equipment (eye tracker, video cameras, etc.) mentioned in the previous studies was used to record participants vision and motion information.

7 Participants were asked to make a left-hand dribble, a step, a jump stop, followed by a jump shot from a designated area on the court floor at their own pace. They were given practice trails to become familiar with the environment and equipment. R. Ferraz de Oliveira and colleagues found that these jump shooters preferred to pick up visual information about the basket as late as possible given their adopted shooting style. In low-style group, shooters saw the basket just before the ball and hands passed their line of sight, and they picked up visual information just before the basket was occluded by the ball and hands. In high-style group, shooters saw the basket just before ball release, and they picked up visual information just before ball was released. Since long fixations on the target were made impossible due to the alternation of opening and closing the glasses, it provided R. Ferraz de Oliveira and colleagues convincing support on their research hypothesis that late information pick-up is preferred in basketball jump shooting. This evidence provided logical sense in view of the fact that basketball players usually have to perform jump shots under tremendous time pressure and pressure of the defending team. Hence, visual information would be processed as late as possible in order to give more time to the jump shooter so that he or she could scan the environment for open teammates closer to the basket or defenders that could possibly block the shot. To the extent that research on basketball has gone, visual information processing in basketball shooting has been barely touched upon in recent years. Due to vast technological advancement, researchers are able to look more closely at the timing of visual information pickup during the act of shooting. All of the studies mentioned in this article took place in experimental settings. Therefore, some researchers did not look at or failed to find evidence to support their findings in real field settings such as competitions. More research is still needed to be conducted on this matter.
