Tennis Teaching and Variation Pattern of Neurotransmitter Based on Electroencephalographic Testing Technology

Yuanguo Liu, Xin Wang


Tennis sport is a fast-changing sport requiring both strength and speed. To play tennis, players need to have excellent psychological quality and high-level control and anti-control abilities. However, in tennis teaching, it is difficult to accurately see how the players’ psychological quality is. With the wide application of electroencephalographic (EEG) testing technology, the changes in brain waves and brain potential in tennis sport can be well detected. Based on the EEG testing technology, this paper studies the behaviouristics and neurology in tennis teaching, and the experimental results show that tennis teaching has a causal relationship with the improvement of players’ anticipation abilities and that the teaching effect can be maintained for about five months. In EEG testing, the more concentrated the subjects were, the more suppressed α waves would be. In the rest state and the memory state, the neurotransmitter in the central nervous system changed regularly, and the brain also had regular fluctuations.
