Sports performances typically serve as examples of adept motor control. In a similar way to how research on neurological patients has influenced early work in cognitive neuroscience, efforts to recognise the brain strategies supporting such manoeuvres might likewise educate us about prevalent conceptions of behaviour. While research on non-human animal models offers invaluable information on the brain dynamics of skilled motor control that is still difficult to obtain in people, recreation sciences have given these mechanisms remarkably little attention. Similarly, knowledge gained from studying game play may inspire ground-breaking animal neurophysiology investigations, however they have only been partially carried out. Here, we propose that encouraging collaborations between these two seemingly unrelated fields—animal neurophysiology and video game sciences, which may also result in mutual advantages. A special perspective on the computations for motor control, for example, can be gained by recording and altering the recreation from neurons of acting animals. This perspective has undoubtedly unexplored potential for improving athletes’ motor skills. In the current paper, we also provide steps for the reverse translation of recreation sciences discoveries to animal fashions and the assessment of comparability between animal fashions of a specific activity and athletes in order to spark such transdisciplinary discussion. In the article’s concluding section, we propose that some methods created for studying animal neurophysiology should be applied to activity sciences as soon as possible (for example, improved tracking methods) or in the future (for example, novel intelligence stimulation techniques) and should be used to assess and control motor skills. , with ramifications for human performance going well beyond athletics.
