Interfering with Fear
This video adapted from NOVA scienceNOW examines research into why people “choke,” or fail to perform well under pressure. To understand what happens in our brains during stressful situations, cognitive scientist Sian Beilock and her team simulate testing scenarios and use brain scans to measure communication between the parts of the brain that contain working memory and emotional centers. Evidence suggests that when test takers are stressed out, emotional centers are overactive. Beilock then tests a strategy to prevent these parts of the brain from communicating with each other.
