I might be biased, but I do believe that the best sport psychology candidates are those who have partaken in an elite sport or performance domain (like competitive dance or professional music). I am a firm believer in the sport psychology consultant using their as-lived, phenomenological experience from their own sporting experience to really relate to and provide hands-on tools to the athlete. Kind of like a ‘been-there-done-that’ phenomenon: the consultant has already been there themselves, so they have a better understanding of what tool will make the difference with the athlete/high performer. This is not to say that you have to have been an elite athlete/performer to be an expert sport psychologist, I just happen to think those that have competed in an elite sport or its equivalent have a leg up.
3) The way you should be thinking about the program is like this: it’s a chance to spend five years doing nothing but studying your favorite subject in great depth while keeping adequate health insurance and avoiding debt. You really won’t have either the time or the money to do very much else, so you had better really love this subject. You remember that episode of the Simpsons where the devil’s ironic punishment for Homer is to force feed him an endless stream of donuts, but gets frustrated because Homer never stops loving the donuts? Well you have to love your subject like Homer loves donuts, because that’s going to be you. If you do love it though, you won’t even notice being broke or studying all the time.
Alzheimer's disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that causes a change in the mental state of patients suffering form the illness. The generation of amyloid ß-peptide (Aß) by enzymatic cleavages of the ß-amlyoid precursor protein (APP) has been at the center of Alzheimer's disease (AD) research. This research reported the first account of computational studies which highlighted flap dynamics amongst Beta secretase and their various parameters. Dr Kumulos work has led to publication in five international scientific journals to date.
