This preliminary study aims to record the brainwaves of two experienced archers, whist undertaking the process of aiming and shooting arrows at a target. The brainwaves are then analysed for repeatability and dominant characteristics within individual EEG activity. Images of the archers are also recorded to establish reference points within the shot cycle for correlating the EEG data sets.
