Our group examines sports-related mental toughness definition previously researched among athletes population from the neuroscience perspectives using a state-of-the-art neurotechnology.
Redefining this mental toughness construct is extended to health professionals in training (doctors, nurses) by approaching mental toughness in the context of their working environments that are known to be stress-prone.
