I didn't think smell; taste or Kinesthesis could affect me throwing a basketball so I didn't try any tests for those senses. How My Senses Affected My Performance No Senses Changed When I had nothing to affect how I shot, I scored 4 out of 5 baskets. This is because I am not 100% accurate, as I don't practise a lot. Only lack of practise affected my performance. Touch Changed - Gloves On When I had gloves on the ball was more slippery and I couldn't get a good grip on it. This is why I only got 2 out of 5 baskets. By not wearing gloves when shooting normally I wasn't used to these conditions. The gloves affected my performance quite badly.

Which Senses Are Most Important For my game - basketball the most important senses were Vision and touch. Without these working to their ability in normal conditions then I can't perform to my best ability. How Do My Senses Help Me Process Information When I had the gloves on information was picked up that I couldn't grip the ball as easily. This information is stored in the long-term memory as it is relevant information. The next time I shot I could adjust myself slightly as I remembered that I wouldn't get as much grip on the ball. This process is repeated for all the senses. Eventually after repeating the shots in the different conditions I would be able to shoot accurately because my senses picked up the same information over and over again and stored it in the long-term memory. Every time my senses pick up the same information intrinsic feedback is given by the sense Kinesthesis. ?? ?? ?? ??
