Abstract [sv]

Studiens syfte var att med neuropsykologiska utredningsverktyg undersöka exekutiva funktioner hos allsvenska fotbollsspelare samt division 1 spelare. Även sambandet mellan spelarnas exekutiva funktioner, gjorda mål och assist undersöktes. 57 herr- och damspelare testades. Elva kliniska utredningstest användes. Resultaten visade att de allsvenska spelarna hade signifikant bättre kapacitet på vissa exekutiva funktioner än spelarna från division 1. Även de spelare som gjort flest mål och assist hade i förhållande till de som gjort minst, bättre kapacitet på flertalet exekutiva funktioner. Den förklarade variansen visade att de exekutiva funktionerna, i vissa fall, utgjorde mellan 30 % och 40 % av samtliga egenskaper som påverkar spelarnas prestationsförmåga mätt i mål och assist. Resultaten indikerar att kapaciteten av de exekutiva funktionera kan ha betydelse för fotbollspelares sportsliga framgång.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to, with neuropsychological test tools, examine the executive functions among soccer players from premier league and first division. The relations between the players’ executive functions and their goals and assists were also examined. 57 male and female soccer players were tested. Eleven different clinical test tools were used. The result shows that the players from premier league had significant better capacity of their executive functions than the players from the first division. Also the players who scored most goals and did most assist had better capacity in several of their executive functions than the players that scored and assisted least. R Square showed in some cases that 30 to 40 % of the total capacity of the players’ performance in assists and goal scoring were provided by the executive functions. The result indicates that the capacity of the executive functions among soccer players could have importance for their success.
