EXPLORING NEW HORIZONS IN HUMAN PERFORMANCE, WE PUSH THE BOUNDARIES TO BETTER UNDERSTAND WHAT MOTIVATES, ENHANCES, AND SUPPORTS HIGH-LEVEL EXPERTISE

The Centre for Elite Performance, Expertise, and Training (CEPET) at Macquarie University conducts multidisciplinary research designed to address three core problems in the study of elite performance and expertise: understanding its acquisition, its maintenance, and its loss.

As well as advancing scholarly knowledge of these three areas, CEPET is equipped to translate experimental findings into real-world applications and tools for training and maintaining expertise, selecting individuals with a propensity for expertise, and providing psychological and social support for individuals who experience a loss of expertise, whether through retirement, injury, or for other reasons.

The strength of CEPET's multidisciplinary team from Psychology, Cognitive Science, Linguistics, Anthropology, Music, and Computer Science has led to recent success in a cornerstone 2017 ARC Linkage Project entitled Enhancing Lifeguard Performance: A Multidisciplinary Approach.
