Sports Medicine Psychology Lab unveils research-focused blog

The Sports Medicine Psychology Lab (SMPL), one of the newest labs in the School of Kinesiology, also has a new blog, focused on current research trends and activities related to sports medicine psychology. Reed Steele, a doctoral student studying sport psychology in the School of Kinesiology, will serve as the blog's editor.

The Sports Medicine Psychology Lab studies psychological and social factors that relate to physical activity injury risk, response and recovery, such as emotional responses of runners to sport injury, psychosocial aspects of injuries to military trainees, gender and sport injury, concussions and the female athlete, and the social pressures of conformity to playing with pain.
