About Marc Jones

My research interest is in stress, emotion and performance. Much of this research is done within sport settings. A recent area of research interest has been exploring challenge and threat states in stressful situations. That is, how individuals differ in the psycho-physiological responses to stressful situations and how these challenge and threat states relate to performance. Related to this I also explore the effectiveness of psychological techniques that may be used to maintain and enhance performance in achievement settings, like sport. This knowledge is applied when I work as a consultant in sport to individual athletes and teams.
